MIXED MEDIA PAINTING
AGED GENTLEMAN is a small work on paper that incorporates
earth pigments that I gathered in nature, having made my own paints
from scratch since 1973.
But my approach in this instance has been to utilize the earth paints
in a mixed media approach. The earth pigments were laid down in
a thick coating on the paper, then worked with a pallette knife, and
allowed to dry.
This background was then overpainted with aqueous media: in this
case gouache paints.
