I have painted this piece being moved by Robert Frost's poem, "Snow."  I used a rich mixture of lamp black and Prussian blue watercolor paints, with a splash of crimson/cadmium red. I chose thick, exceptional quality 300 g/m Strathmore watercolor paper.

Getting to Know Suzanna

Suzanna Orlova exclusively uses shades of red and black in her paintings. This is largely because she was born color blind. Her vision deficiency did not stop her from being interested in painting at a young age, and honing her skills as a self-taught artist. Suzanna’s work is haunting, eerie, and emotional. The painterly realism she employs in capturing her subjects is technically remarkable for the water-based media she uses. Bordering on surrealism, each painting leaves the viewer feeling deeply moved. Suzanna lives and works on Vancouver Island, Canada.
