Exercise: Mixing Materials into Paint

Experiment with mixing materials from the landscape to build texture into your painting,

Unfortunately, it’s been pouring with rain incessantly, so bringing mud pies in from the landscape is not going to be appropriate. I have collected various bits and pieces from around the house, greenhouse and general bits and bobs.

Over these two days I have had great fun playing and experimenting with all sorts of materials, paints, inks and glues. I’ve used egg shells, gardener’s grit, netting from lemons, hand-made paper, raffia  and many other materials I have found and hoarded.

These are great to keep as reference for other projects.
