VIDEO: Turning Waking Art Into Real Art – Mixed Media Abstract Art

 

Have you ever woken up with a picture in your head of a project you really need to do? Well, this happened to me yesterday. I woke with a really clear image in my head, this waking art just popped into my head as I became aware of the new day and started to open my eyes. But it wasn’t just an image it was a feeling too, you know when you wake up and the images and feelings are all merged together as one? I couldn’t hold onto the feelings, they soon vanished back into the dream world, but the image was still there and I tried to turn it into something real and you can watch me do that in my video today.

It is a very mixed media piece with gouache and watercolor paint, acrylic ink and collage. So go grab a tea or coffee and watch my waking art turn into real art!

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Faces – Collaboration With My Arty Heart – Part 2

 

Last week I shared the background that I made for Jeanine from My Arty Heart in our art collaboration. Did you see it? I made her two backgrounds, I wonder which one she decided to use? Well, before you go find out here is what I did with the gorgeous background she sent me. I decided to go with a portrait, well actually two portraits for my collaboration piece. You can find out why and watch it come together in this speed art timelapse video.

After you have watched my video go check out what Jeanine made with the backgrounds I made her! Scroll on down for her other links too, the supplies I have used today and a close up picture of the portraits!

VIDEO: Easy Expressive Flower Drawing Exercise Using Watersoluble Crayons

 

I really love using crayons to draw with, they can be so expressive can’t they? I’m sharing a great flower drawing exercise in my Wednesday art video this week, using watersoluble crayons. This easy flower drawing exercise if great for beginners and experts alike. If you are a beginner it will help you build confidence with your expressive drawing. For the more advanced try it as a quick warm up exercise before a longer art session!

Don’t worry if you don’t have watersoluble crayons, you don’t have to use them as I say in the video. You can also swap out crayons for pencils and I give you a tip on how to use your pencils in an expressive manner in the video. Scroll down for all the products I have used, it’s a really small list today! And there is a close up of the finished piece under the video too!

VIDEO: Easy Acrylic Paint Background Mixed Media Technique

 

I’m keeping things simple today with a really easy, but totally effective, acrylic paint background. And for a bit of contrast I have also played with one of my geometric designs as I wanted to see how it would look on this background. So if you haven’t yet tried using your acrylic paints like a watercolor paint then you will enjoy playing with this easy acrylic paint background as it will ease you in to trying this technique in a no fear kind of way! It’s only a background after all!

And you can see that you can use it for pretty much any mixed media fun that you might want to add over the top as it just stays put as an acrylic paint background should! So try it in your next art journal, painting, mixed media or even card making project! And I have a close-up picture at the end of this post plus some links to other videos you might enjoy too!
