Mixed Media and Photo Transfer on Canvas

Workshop Description:

We will be working on two gessoed canvases. The process will be to place photo transfers; collage and texture the canvas surfaces; complete the canvases with paint, incorporating dry brushing and glazing, and drawing over the transfers, and possibly drawing on the canvas. Participants can choose to work in a contemporary or traditional manner.

The workshop will commence at 9am Sat 22nd April (for a 9.30am start) and run through until 4pm with a break for lunch.

On Sunday 23rd April, the workshop will recommence at 9am (for a 9.30am start) and run through until 4pm with a break for lunch.

Materials List

The barest essential things for workshop 1 are two canvases; paints, palette knife and brushes; paper towels and a visual diary to take notes; photocopied images; spray bottle; containers for holding the washes (I use round takeaway ones); flat palette and sponge roller; binder medium, clear painting medium, gel texture medium and texture compound medium (I use Atelier); glad wrap; clear packaging tape; collage papers; and

If you are planning on putting any of your drawings into the collage, you will need some Mat Spray – this is not fixative- it is not varnish! it is a professional seal for photographs etc; I use Micador.

Drawing gear and Art Spectrum clear pastel primer- it has to be Art Spectrum as the other mediums available do not dry as clear.
