Another mixed media girl in my art journal...;)


Purists say that mixed media is for those with short attention spans because they can't decide on which medium to focus on so they play with whatever catches their eye. I think that people who dabble in mixed media want to best of all worlds so everything gets thrown into the mix! *winks*

Well, that's my story for this mixed media girl in my art journal. *LOL*

I started her with coloured pencil sketch, then went in with watercolours and soft pastels on her face.

After a few coats of workable fixative (to fix the pastels), I went in with Prismacolor pencils to define the features and Faber Castell Gelatos for the cheeks and highlights.

The hair was painted with Liquitex ink in a brush pen and the background was coloured with Caran d'Ache Neocolor II watersoluble crayons.

I finished off with a white Molotow paint marker for the highlights in the eyes and used Prismacolor pencils to suggest movement in the hair.

P/s: So I really do use my art supplies and not just collect them!

This mixed media face is amazing. You did a good job with all the mediums you used...unbelievable! I have a lot of supplies but I don't experiment much and blend them together. I love how you let her hair flow into the next page and her eyes are hypnotizing. You are so talented!
