"Learning to use mixed media can be fun let's have a look at some different projects to get going. These have been kindly shared by Gary Dutton Art Tutor from the classes attended in learning to create" - Debbie

In this mixed media there is an interplay between a thin, transparent medium and a thicker, opaque medium.

Pastel, like gouache is most effective when applied to a toned or coloured ground where it’s opaque qualities are most obvious.

A support with some texture is best, so that the pastel can adhere to the surface, and watercolour is an ideal partner because it sinks into the support without filling the grain.
