Working with mixed media opens up a variety of exciting possibilities, both technical and creative.

In this inspiring book, Mike and Susie will show you how to work with collage and acrylic inks to create stunning images that capture the essence and colour of coastal subjects. At the same time, you’ll see how shape and form can be simplified to create impact in a move towards the principles of abstraction.

The focus is not so much on technique as results and using mixed media as an end rather than a means in itself. There are plenty of examples, exercises and demonstrations to help you understand the working methods, but the emphasis throughout is on creativity and developing a personal vision. Subjects include buildings and boats as well as water, skies and shorelines, with ways to depict them all clearly explained.

This is an inspiring book that goes a long way towards opening up what can be a perplexing way of working and will immerse you completely.
