Focusing on a corner of your home or any internal space is a great way to study light within your paintings. When Susan paints parts of rooms in her home, it helps her to see those areas and appreciate them in a whole new way. Also, when Susan travels, she loves painting and drawing the spaces where she stays or other interiors that attract her. It becomes the greatest souvenir of any place one could have.

We will explore how light, space and composition are used to create an interior painting. Whether you are wanting to capture an idea for the light, an architectural detail or an inside view looking outdoors, Susan Greenstein will guide you along to make painting interiors part of your painting practice.

This class is appropriate for those who have taken Susan’s last class as well as those beginning or revisiting their watercolor journey.

We will cover:

Week one:

Setting up materials. What to look for when painting an interior. We will discuss simple principles of perspective. Susan will do a demonstration, using a limited palette that will show how to begin and how to bring your painting to completion. We will look at some of artists who have painted interiors and discuss them.

Week two:

We will look at the work created by participants during the week and discuss. Susan will answer questions and we can discuss discoveries and challenges that each participant might have experienced as well as strategies to help with problem-solving. Susan will also provide a demonstration of moving into a broader spectrum of color with her painting. We will look at several more artists’ paintings of interiors and discuss them.

Week three:

We will create and inside/outside painting where we paint and interior, but also include some of the outside, (through a window or doorway) within our paintings.

Susan Greenstein lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her BFA at Pratt Institute where she was exposed to many ways of working and looking at the world. A deep interest in pattern has been a constant inspiration for Greenstein. At times she finds these patterns while observing flora and architecture at how they are interwoven. At other times, Greenstein finds these patterns in a more abstracted form. This can especially be seen in her recent monoprints, which are inspired by memories of patterns.
