Let's Paint with Susan Schwake

This summer I signed up for an online course called Let's Paint with Susan Schwake. As a high school teacher we are required to take so many hours of professional development each year, and I prefer to do that over my summer break. This year I decided to refresh my painting skills and learn a few new techniques from another art teacher.
Susan's 6 week course was great! We covered everything from color theory, mark making, choosing the right tools, experimenting with different tools, developing your own style, critiques and finding inspiration.
I'm still experimenting and playing with some of her suggestions I've had so much fun, and. truly enjoyed her on line class
Here are a few of my favorite paintings from the course. Can't tell you how they came about... you'll have to sign up for her class.You can find her at Susan Schwake or  follow her blog The Art and times of Susan Schwake,
