Mixed Media Book

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.

    Saw some of Mike Bernard’s paintings some years ago, and bought this book… Quite difficult to emulate, but he always seems to select his collage pieces very carefully/cleverly…and the real things are wondeful! Enjoy!

    what a coincidence! Being totally inexperienced with mixed media, this is going to be challenging but now that I’ve read his techniques at least I have a starting point, albeit a very shaky one. would be great to see them in real life
