Mixed Media work

  1. Recently I have used a lot of mixed media in my work such as different/vintage papers, found items sometimes from the shoreline, acrylics, oil crayons and inks. I  often start by creating some kind of texture on to my blank paper by using materials such as gesso, pva glue and tissue paper. I will then draw on to the textured paper with ink using an old twig or rough brush to give some idea of the composition and subject. Then I add paint firstly using watercolours and then acrylics. Lastly I add any 'found' objects that I think fit into the picture.
