#MixedMedia Sea Dragon in #Ink #Watercolor & #Acrylic

 

This fanciful sea dragon was done on card stock. It started out as a printmaking ink mono print, but as soon as I did the initial impression I saw the sea dragon and I knew I wanted to do the rest in watercolor and acrylic. It’s light and feels like summer to me; a great counter point to this time of year in New England. She’s just magical. One of my new favorites.

Mixed Media Tile Paintings-A Plug For Artstream’s Mixed Media Course

I had a blast making these mixed media tile paintings. I haven’t worked with mixed media very often, but it is becoming one of my favorite ways of expressing myself now. I am learning more about how to use the layering techniques and various mediums and what to add when to compliment different sections of the layers as they go on. It’s sometimes complicated and often thrilling.

I’m just about to start an online mixed media course taught by Susan Schwake from Artstream in Dover. It’s an online class meant for all skill levels. Susan is the perfect teacher whether you are a beginner or an accomplished artist or someone who wants to dabble a bit. She is really interested in helping you find what makes you happy when you express yourself in art and tries to give you the tools you will need to get to where you would like to go. I highly recommend her online courses.
