Mixed media painting is a more common practice than a lot of artists give it credit for. In fact, most artists mix media without even thinking about it. Simply using a charcoal or pencil sketch on canvas before applying paint technically is considered mixed media. Combining washes of watercolor with pastel in an urban landscape painting is mixed media art, too. The free eBook, Mixed Media Painting Techniques: Combine Media to Create Inspired Mixed Media Art, profiles two artists who blur the edges between media to create fascinating work. The free eBook provides insight to:

-   Answer the common question, “What is mixed media art?”
-   Create mixed media paintings that pulse with life
-   Transform ideas and conceptions about mixed media art

Mixed media painting combines different painting and drawing materials and methods to create one unique piece of artwork. The new free mixed media art eBook includes techniques and abstract art ideas from skilled mixed media artists.

Mixed media artist, Janet Cook's paintings of New York City pulse with life and rhythm, partly due to the fact that she is able to mix the vibrant colors of pastel with the expressive fluidity of watermedia. For Russell Irwin, painting is more like mosaic art, as he uses mixed media collage elements like torn paper in combination with acrylic paint to form a richly textured surface on his paintings. Irwin acknowledges that this process forces him to approach his work as if it was abstract art, where the relationship between shape and color dominates. Art—mixed media artwork at that—is all about freethinking and experimentation. Mixing media is the gateway to the kind of exploration that can really allow an artist to discover how they want to make art, and not just what has been taught or what is most comfortable.
