A very kind person lent me this interesting book, (Bernard, Mike and Capon, Robin, 2010, Collage, Colour and Texture in Painting: London, Batsford) at quite an appropriate time, I see we have an exercise in mixed media coming up.
I have always had a bit of fear about mixed media because I don’t really know how to go about it but am really happy that I read this book, even though it’s about painting, it’s very relevant.
The author explains his painting technique in details which I think I will be a very good place to start from when attempting mixed media. I am excited to try it out now and have some fun with it. Who knows, this could become my favourite thing.
