Vianna Szabo - Finding the Why (57)

Vianna Szabo comfortably switches between painting with pastel,  watercolor, acrylic, or oil. She paints beautifully sensitive portraits. Her landscape paintings capture a fleeting moment in time. Expressive color is a hallmark of her paintings no matter the subject she chooses or the medium she uses. In this episode you soon learn that Vianna has a passion for teaching other artists. Vianna's ability to take complex subjects and convey them in simple and relatable terms is a hallmark of her approach to teaching. Her students enthusiastically share their admiration and appreciation of her teaching methods. One such student emailed me and said that Vianna "has a delightful personality." After recording this interview and getting to know Vianna, I have to agree! Vianna talks about a number of intriguing topics: How is color mixing like the movie Mean Girls? Can family members be successfully used as models? And speaking of models, how is plein air painting like painting a drunk model? How do you keep photo references from bossing you around? What are the do's and don't's of copying another artist's work? What is the story of the painting and how do you find it? And there's so much more to this conversation. After listening to Vianna you will come away uplifted by her kindness, generosity, and positivity. Not surprisingly, all of those things are evident in each of her paintings. As you view and experience her beautiful paintings, you get a sense that Vianna Szabo has – in each one – succeeded in Finding the Why.
