Susheela Curtis

Painting for me has become a journey of exploration and learning. I paint still life, landscapes, portraits and life drawings. I go to portrait classes and life drawing sessions. I have been on painting and drawing courses at the Midlands Art Centre, the RBSA as well as the art centre on the Isle of Wight.

I use acrylic to paint still life and landscape. I generally use soft pastels for life drawing and portraits. The figures and portraits are drawn with charcoal or pastel pencil and painted with soft pastels on a prepared background of acrylic, they represent my efforts to develop texture and colour through the use of mixed media.

In all my paintings I am exploring about how to use light and shade, colour and texture to express specific qualities of the subject.
