cloud lifting on Mount Taranaki - ink mixed media

Very effective Mike. I am thinking of venturing a bit more into mixed media.

Like the effect and like that you have included the pylons and not omitted them. It gives a reality to the scene and I like the mixed media effect you have created.

The pylons add scale and direction to the composition. great work Mike.

Hi to all , thanks for the kind comments. Sandra , have a look at Chris Forsey for mixed media DVDs - they show that different medias can be used successfully together. This one uses ink , watercolour , acrylic , and gouache Fully agree regarding those pylons , without them there the picture loses most , if not all , of its impact

Lvely near and far perspective Mike. Nice work.

Its a terrific painting Mike, love the greens.

Gorgeous painting Mike.

Thanks Mike for the heads-up about Chris Forsey's DVDs, will have a look.

Hang on Studio Wall

very mixed media starting with the ink work and then throwing everything else in the pot as well. Thoroughly enjoyed the painting of this - and that is what it is all about
