mixed media with art spectrum

One of the joys of being an artist comes from experimenting!  Here are some mixed media experiments by artist John Burge, using Art Spectrum products (click to see larger images).

A mixture of Art Spectrum Watercolour, Colourfix, sand and eggshells.

Watercolour with gladwrap and watercolour with rock salt on Colourfix paper.

Please note that adding different media may have an impact on the longevity of your artwork.
Happy painting!

Hi Lola, thanks for your interest. If you're in the area, I'm holding a mixed media / watercolour, ( which should answer most of your query ) & oil painting workshop on the 25th & 26th of June with the Bright Art Society. Please contact Leslie Orgill at merrimeet@bigpond.com for information. Should be a good weekend. Regards, John
