Using mixed media is a great way to experiment and stimulate the creative process. I use acrylic with watercolour on occasions to creat an effect or see where I can go with a piece. One can use pastels with watercolour and acrylic as well. Some artists start a painting with thin layers of acrylic underpainting and then use oil paint for the subsequent layers. It all depends on what suits, but do not be afraid to try new things. The painting below is acrylic with some watercolour washes on top 7x10 ins.

Using mixed media
at 10:57 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.
