“Light Over the Hills” Mixed media. I began with thin washes of acrylic paint onto an (6” x 8”) A5 approx. sheet of Strathmore Toned Tan, 300gsm mixed media paper. Then I brushed on some gouache, and worked/played with some coloured pencil on top. When I had pushed the coloured pencil as far as I... Continue Reading →

A bit of a play, on a piece of 4” x 6”, 290gsm Canson canvas paper, with watercolours, and little bit of gouache. Both mediums worked well on this paper. I drew over the paint with a few ink pen lines for some definition. No pilling...the washes lay longer on the surface than with watercolour... Continue Reading →
