Painting in mixed media combines all the excitement and potential of different materials and techniques, while giving the artist the opportunity to express themselves without any of the limitations of each separate medium. Whether you love the vibrancy of pastels, the versatility of acrylics or the dynamism of collage, this book shows you how to combine them to make a unique piece of art. Alongside Soraya's beautiful paintings, it encourages the artist to express themselves, to experiment with their own creative ideas and to enjoy the magical potential of painting in mixed media. Materials include gels, pastes and paper collage, as well as paints. Step-by-step demonstrations explain how to build paintings layer by layer and projects put theories into practice. Advice throughout leads you through techniques and warns against common mistakes, with ideas to suggest ways to create your own personal visual voice. Fully illustrated with 366 beautiful paintings by the author.

"Irish Watercolors and Drawings offers a unique chronicle of Irish history. The exquisite watercolors, drawings, and pastels reproduced here capture a broad range of Irish experience, extending beyond picturesque landscapes and pretty colleens to Irish emigrants arriving in America, polar expeditions, Maori encampments, army barracks, horse races, taverns, grand country houses, and the interiors of Irish cabins." "Key Irish artists such as George Barret, Francis Danby, Frederick William Burton, and Jack Yeats, along with many less well known figures, are seen in historical and social contexts. Irish painters abroad - in North America, Australia, New Zealand, India, and elsewhere - are treated in a special section. Artists who visited and were inspired by Ireland are also represented." "The comprehensive text accompanies more than 400 illustrations, among them many unfamiliar works from museums and private collections around the world."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
