I t’s been a full day in our studio today as our Mixed Media workshop with artist Ingrid Holborn. unfolded. 5 of us set about learning some new paint techniques and mixed media approaches. These included stippling, sponging and colourwashing alongside masking, stencilling and collaging plus adding texture and detail.
We experimented with these then set to work on our canvas pieces. The day flew by and after much painting, getting sticky with Mod Podg, cleaning of brushes, sponges and stencils then finally a phew! We were all tired but happy with our finished results and having had a very relaxing and satisfying day.
As an absolute beginner, I cannot recommend this course enough to get you started; but it is also perfect for the more experienced painter wanting to think ‘out of the box’.
