"My style is realistic with as much impressionistic color as possible. I like to combine wide brushes for sweeping strokes in the background with small, soft brushes for subtle details in my center of interest." ~Susan Lyon
I was privileged enough to get to work with Susan in person as she created a DVD that I produced a few years ago, Mastering Portrait Drawing. If you think her work is beautiful here or in person, you should watch her paint. Click here to reach more of her videos and lessons as well as the DVD mentioned above. You can see a preview demo of Susan's upcoming online video lesson below.
Susan's work will be in a group exhibit at the Maxwell Alexander Gallery opening this coming Friday in Culver City, California. If you're anywhere close, the exhibit has a number of fabulous artists participating and a preview can be seen on the Gallery website: www.maxwellalexandergallery.com/exhibition/
If you are interested in studying with Susan, she will be teaching a workshop in portraiture this coming September in Taos, New Mexico at the E.L. Blumenschein Home. You can find out more details at her website: Blumenschein
To see more of Susan's work, you can visit numerous galleries around the country that hold her in their collections or you can visit her website.
