The Mixed Media phase

I am officially into my Mixed Media phase.
It's weird
I've always love watercolour... since, well, forever!
I loved the challenge that water-colour and ink offers to an Artist to grow and expand improving  their skills with every single stroke of paint.

But at time I felt a little bit limited with water-colour; and I always wanted to experiment with it in a more 'unconventional' way. (Remember this?)

Recently, I have re-discovered the delights of Mixed Media Art, and I am loving it!
I used to do mixed media art in my teens, well before my Art training, and at the time, it was my favourite!

I have always been a collector for things.
I actually think that every Artist is a collector

Artists save that piece of scrap paper because the colour its just the one that they adore. They save maps because they are oh so gorgeous. They save music sheets because they are so poetic and romantic. They save stamps because they consider them miniature paintings that could not be possibly be throw into the recycle. They save petals, because it remind them of happy summer days wondering about in a field of grass.

 I have all of these things... I have always collected them and kept them knowing that someday I would use them in my Artworks. Now the time has really come!

I had loads of fun with my new mixed media paintings recently.
Happy to say that I've been filming the work in progress of each piece, so you shall soon see them coming along from start to finish.

These pieces are also going to be up the Society 6 Art Store, available as prints, cards, cushions and more...

~ By the way I have 3 Society6 stores, did you know? ~
