Mixed-Media Landscapes and Seascapes
By Chris Forsey (Author)
Using water-based media—such as watercolors, pastels, wax crayons, ink, and acrylics—artists can develop exciting surface textures and effects, including serendipitous washes, smears, and drifts of color and tone. Through step-by-step demonstrations, Mixed-Media Landscapes and Seascapes encourages you to experiment and get the best results by mixing two, three, and even four different types of media. After helping painters decide what they want to achieve in their work, the book rigorously explores a variety of combinations: wax crayon and watercolor; oil pastel, watercolor, and acrylic; oil pastel and acrylics; and oil pastel, watercolor, ink, and acrylics. With plenty of finished paintings as inspiration, it helps you take your art to the next level.
