Prepare your supplies and follow me along for the next hour to create your first mixed media painting!
I explain the entire process verbally and with notes as we go along, step-by-step, from start to finish so you know exactly what to do and how to do it.
This super easy and fun tutorial will show you that you too can be an ARTIST, whether you have zero experience or just want to try a new style of painting.
Once you are done and realise how easy painting can be, you will:- have built a lot of confidence- no longer be afraid of the dreaded ''blank space'- now have the perfect recipe to create great backgrounds for more complex paintings!
So, what are you waiting for...? :)
First we will create a background by spreading colours everywhere! That's why it's called ''Let Loose'' ;-)
Learn how to apply colours with your fingers and how to make interesting marks on your painting
Create marks and lines simply with your paintbrushes, you don't need expensive tools!
I love adding a layer of mystery and shine on my paintings, let's try that with some gold, although this step is optional if you don't like it.
Let's add more layers to create more depth...
Just like with gold, iridescent paint is a great and simple way to add that little ''extra'' that makes your art stand out from the crowd... Again, this step is optional if you don't like the shine.
Let's loosen up a little more with some doodling! Don't think, just let your hand guide your pen accross the painting and have fun with it!
Adding more layers of colour will make our painting really vibrant and interesting...
Time for final touches, we will add a few marks that will really draw the viewer's attention and make him/her feel curious about looking at the rest of the painting!
I have been a professional artist (with a background in graphic design) for 15 years, selling my art all around the world.
Like most people, I felt overwhelmed and shy when I decided to launch myself into the world of painting and since I couldn't find the style I liked, I simply created my own and you can do the same!
