Girl and puppy mixed media painting tutorial


Today I am sharing with you a mixed media painting tutorial, perfect time so you can have creative time on your weekend.
Enjoy !

You will need:
a surface to paint - I am using my journal 
Paintbrush
Acrylic paints
Watercolor crayons ( mine are from Caran D'ache)
Tissue paper and some scraps of other papers
Black pencil
Acrylic markers
Oil pastels
Gel medium


Step 1 - make some doodles with your watercolor crayons and activate the color with a bit of water
Step 2 - spread some paint randomly using color you love


Step 3 - glue with gel medium silk paper and bits of other papers that grab your attention 


step 4 - draw your characters and elements on the painting with a black pencil and have fun making some doodles to get that child innocent playful look


Step 5 - use your paint markers to give one more layer to the background ( in some spots) and details to the painting. Apply a bit of water with your paintbrush to dissolve the paint and get a transparent watercolor look


Step 6 - use your finger to make some apples to your tree and paint the girls face with your acrylic paint


Step 7 - paint the dog with a bit of watercolor crayon, I used a deep blue and mixed with white acrylic paint.
Step 8 - use your pastels to highlight some areas and give contrast
Step 9 - remember to give your girl a pink chicks ;)

I hope you like this process 
Wishing you a great weekend
