Just messing around with my paints in my studio and did a lukewarm painting of a cappucino I drank and photographed in Italy. As I studied the painting, I tried to remember the advice I give my students, your paintings don't have to be perfect. In fact if you are trying something new, they are rarely perfect. After giving myself this excellent advice, I turned out the lights and went to sleep. In the middle of the night, I woke up thinking that since this painting wasn't perfect I could mess it up and try some mixed-media stuff on it. I have been wanting to incorporate mixed media into my watercolors for a long time, but somehow couldn't seem to do it. Anyway, this is the result, it isn't perfect, but I have opened the door to mixed media for myself. Any suggestions for adding mixed media to a watercolor would be appreciated.
