My studio looks a little different this week. The oil paints have been temporarily shoved to the side to make way for some new works on paper which I’m creating for an upcoming show. This particular piece is being created on top of a gouache painting I made back in 2009. My favorite part of working in mixed media is the layering of images and materials; I usually create a background pattern or texture upon which I add layers that define the final image. So far this portrait incorporates pastel, charcoal, and more gouache.
What’s your approach to mixed media?
