COMBINING MEDIUMS AND IMAGE TRANSFER
Do you wish you could use watercolour on canvas, paint some parts of your painting in oil, yet save time and add texture and colour with acrylics? Would you love to add photographic images to your work and incorporate them seamlessly into your painting so they don't look like cut and paste?
This workshop shows you how to create photographic image transfers to add interest to your work, and to combine watercolours, acrylics and oils effectively on the same canvas so that these paints can all work together without peeling off of each other or the canvas. Also a great class to take if you haven't tried a couple of different paint types and want a fun way to do so.
