Experimenting with Pebeo paints. Part 3.

Mixed media contemporary original art

 “Dance”  Original art,mixed media on cradled panel.                                                                                                         For this painting I have applied the Pebeo paints using  paint brushes. I have tried the pouring technique before taking advantage of the honey consistency of the Pebeo paints.  I just wanted to have more control of the medium this time. It works! It is possible to add some intricate details to the painting. The tip is to be patient and wait between layers because the pint is still trying to run an mix. The paints I used are oil and water based. This is how the chemical reaction between paints creates interesting effects. The texture of the painting is created using collage technique and some acrylic texture medium. Dark spots on water are created with mica flakes which adds some dimension .
