Learn to combine materials to create vibrant art from mixed-media artist Sean Dye. You learn how to layer materials in order to achieve the versatility of mixed-media without sacrificing long-term survivability. Sean demonstrates the tools & techniques to combine charcoal, India ink, acrylic gouache and water-soluble oils on the same canvas. For Sean, each layer defines a different aspect of his process: vine charcoal to define shapes; India ink to plot values; acrylic gouache to create a foil for the colors he places using the final layer of water-soluble oil. His final layer of palette knife water soluble oils establishes color and texture. Sean works from an oil pastel reference painting.
