Demonstration by Susan Keith
Susan Keith is a native California watercolor artist. She was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Hacienda Heights. Her interest in art began very early, as a child, drawing and painting. She attended San Diego State
University where she completed her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Painting and Printmaking. Later on in life, Susan became a teacher and taught all levels of high school art.
Upon retiring from teaching Susan has pursued watercolor with a renewed love and interest. Her professional art career started in 2013, in which she began exhibiting her watercolor paintings publicly. Her work has been shown in local, regional, national and international shows where she has won various awards. Her work has been juried into the National Watercolor Society, California Watercolor Association, the San Diego Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, the Georgia Watercolor Society, the Louisiana Watercolor Society, Northwest Watercolor Society, Kentucky Watercolor Society, Illinois Watercolor Society, the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, and the Society of Watercolor Artists.
Susan’s watercolors have a sense or impression of realism. She incorporates bright colors in her paintings to catch the viewer’s eye. She is intrigued by light and shadow in so many subjects; from foliage, florals, and still life, to plein air landscapes, architecture and portraits. Most days you can find Susan painting in her studio/gallery or on the look out for a beautiful subject that has found her attention to capture in watercolor.
