I took a mixed-media painting course a few years ago but didn’t have time to follow it though. Now I’m taking it again, and finding that some things are easier the second time round, especially selecting images suitable for transfer.
In my previous set of classes the images I brought to the first class had way too much grey in them. This time I prepped my images beforehand. Below are some charming weeds transformed into high-contrast black and white images suitable for transfer.
The images were transferred onto a gessoed and coloured-washed wood panel. My biggest problem this time was that I was a little over anxious to finish, and tried to do two image transfers at the same time. When I finally got around to removing all the paper I had this totally unremovable overlap that I could not get rid of.
Mixed Media Class Experience:
- My first mixed media class – selecting images suitable for transfer
- I am frantically wondering, “Where’s the undo button?”
- Mistakes and more mistakes (using my scribbles painting as an example)
