Mixed media girl on a wood panel


Mixed-media-girl-on-a-wood-panel

I really enjoy using wood as a substrate. For this piece, I applied a layer of clear gesso so that the natural wood colour still shows through [On hindsight, I should have drawn a smaller face...*LOL*].


After that, I sketched my girl with a coloured pencil. Yes, I like to draw with coloured pencils because graphite gets very smudgy and drives me crazy! And I'll let you in on a secret: coloured pencils can be erased when you draw on a gessoed surface! :)


Here's my mixed media girl on a wood panel after using a variety of colorants - Prismacolor pencils, Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils, Daler Rowney Acrylics, Posca Paint Markers, Caran d'ache Neocolor II watersoluble crayons, Liquitex black and brown inks and lots of wet tissue.
