Mixed Media in Progress
Hi I’m currently working on this mixed media painting.
I began with an acrylic wash, drew the images, then included the collage, next I applied gesso over the entire surface. This piece is different, in that I’ve used clear gesso for the first time. It’s provided my with a gorgeous matt surface to then complete the painting in oils.
I’ve decided to finish this piece with oils (first time), as I love the buttery richness of oils. Also, I’m using a minimum of oil in my medium, it’s predominately turpentine. This is giving me a less shiney finish than I would get with more oil in the mixture.
If this post raises more questions than it answers, I’ve just realised it might, feel free to ask me any questions in the comments, and I promise I will answer them as soon as poss.
Thanks for stopping by
