I love mixing acrylic paints and inks together to get unusual colors that I then repeat throughout a collection.
The more fluid colors are perfect over papers or patterned backgrounds.
If you’re looking to add more whimsy and freedom to your artwork, don’t cover everything up in your painting. Instead, when you don’t like something, add a thin layer of ink on top to redefine your painting, but keep the underneath layers showing through.
In this 10 minute video I share one of my favorite mixed media techniques for creating a lusciously layered background.
I hope it keeps you inspired!
