Mixed Media

Bird Song, 2014
Mixed Media on Strathmore watercolor paper, 9" x 11"

Creating art by using more than one medium in a single work intrigues me.  This piece was started with acrylic paint spread on watercolor paper. Torn tissue paper was adhered to the surface with matte medium and then acrylic on a stamp and on the edge of a bottle cap was added.  The bird and quotation were drawn with Faber-Castell black artist pen. The grasses and bird were colored with Prismacolor water color pencil.  The bird's head was painted with Lumiere paint.  
I hope to experiment more with mixed media adding multiple layers, textiles, and found objects. The list of materials is endless.
