Demonstration of landscape painting with mixed media

By Soraya French


The tutor, Soraya French gave a facinating and inspiring demonstration of the use of mixed media of a typical Cornish harbour scene.

Some photos of the demonstration are shown below.

Torn pieces of coloured tissue paper were glued to the board

Bold blocks of colour were added using acrylic ink and a large flat brush

The sea was loosely added in using diluted colours of the same hues as in the top half of the picture

More detail was added using body acrylic paint and water soluble crayons
