An experimental piece on paper, mixed media. Girl in sunlight . Oil over a watercolour and acrylic. I added clear gesso over a watercolour and acrylic and then painted with oil paints using a palette knife. At times I often leave some of the initial watercolour show in the final piece, depending if the tone works. In this case the hat was the original watercolour. I added light effects with impasto.
Mixed media 7.5x5.5 ins on watercolour paper.

Figure in sunlight by Josph Mahon
at 5:11 AM
It's never too late to learn new things, it is often said. I have been painting all my life, and decided to embrace technology and show my art work online. I love watercolour painting and oil painting. The subjects that attract me are varied, from a landscape to a seascape. Genre scenes of everyday life, beach scenes and figurative.
