Susan K Boyle
Dallas, Texas

Susan K Boyle’s paintings always begin with a real person, a model in the studio. She employs a variety of tools to capture the gesture and spirit of the model, including brushes, pens, crayons, and even ordinary sticks. Susan aims to convey the contour and attitude of each individual. Finishing her artworks with fluid acrylics in vibrant colors, Susan evokes playful energy, movement, and vivacity in her compositions.

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

Expressive marks, made with a stick and fluid acrylics, were painted to capture the gesture and mood of this moment. This painting is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.


Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
