by Alison Board
Take your artwork further with this lively, informative guide to combining traditional watercolour with other media.
Adding other media to your watercolour paintings is a fantastic way to take your work in new, more exciting directions. However, the vast array of painting media and materials on the market can be daunting, especially for the absolute beginner. This book introduces the reader to the range of media that is available, explains briefly and clearly how to use the materials and provides six step-by-step projects and inspiring finished paintings to encourage the reader to take a definitive leap into the exciting world of mixed media art.
Author Alison Board covers a multitude of topics in her work, and this book features projects on the subjects of flora, animal portraits, dancers in motion, cities and cityscapes, and landscapes. She explores how to combine wet and dry media, and how to create vibrant collages from man-made and natural found objects. There are no mistakes in mixed-media artwork; Alison encourages the reader to embrace the experimental and be unafraid.
