As so much of my work mixes media it doesn't strictly fit a lot of the groups set up so far.
Does anyone else use mixed media? would like to join a group based around it? Any mix goes!
Below is a mixed media piece with cut and torn marbled paper (a newly learned thing marbling ) collage and watercolour with coloured pencil additions.
other times I'll mix cp or pastel with watercolour or acrylic or charcoal - all sorts of combinations, anything to get the effect that I want to achieve.
i love marbeling and this look very oceanic and expressive at the same time!
thanks Jamie :>)
I've been getting sent all sorts of information via my blog on different techniques - like using shaving foam or wallpaper paste to float colours on, that I'm going to have to experiment with
This one is watercolour with watercolour pencils to draw into the damp washes and define some lines in the rocks - then when it was dry small areas of polychromos coloured pencils were glazed over small areas to enhance subtle colour changes and get the wet shine ion the rocks where they reflected the sky. Also a little white gouache to add to the white paper reserved for the surf and splatter the splashes of foam.
Anyone else feel like showing some mixed media work? please?
I love mixing media! I hate it when things don't play well together though, when certain inks won't paint over acrylics for example. But lately I've been mostly playing with fabric and acrylics and they like eachother.
Here is something I did with my son's class for an auction project - the kids drew the birds and trees and such and I painted and helped them put it all together.
And here is one I made for a friend for her baby's room:
The Blue Between
I like the second one best, that limited colour scheme works well
Thanks Vivien :)
I love mixed media and I feel the same way as you do. I was turned down by a gallery owner that didn't like my work because it was too much texture, but I am not giving up the style that I love to do.
