For the Mixed Media course starting in September students will be asked to bring any art supplies they have lying around and don't know what to do with. So to prepare myself I am dusting off my old art supplies, like soft pastels, and putting them back into action. Here is a work made with coloured pencil, watercolour and soft pastel.
In the photo below you can see how badly my soft pastels needed cleaning and sorting. Many of the small round ones were made by me by hand.
And then I found some more pastels I had made by hand long ago...
While rummaging I came across a little bowl of titanium white pigment that I had once mixed with water and then let dry out. I had some gum arabic that needed using so I made a batch of white watercolour/gouache paint.
I am excited to share my love for making paints and pastels with the students in the Mixed Media class!
