Just love the freedom of Encaustic wax and a small iron. Have been trying for 20 odd years to be ‘reasonable’ with paints, and have had some basic results. but Encaustic it seems to turn out every time. …..Love the stuff. PhyllSeptember 9, 2015 at 1:00 am #59219
My favored medium is pastel, i love the texture and vibrant colors.September 14, 2015 at 6:25 pm #59272
Just love encaustic, applied with a hot small iron, and assorted mini tools. I get the more brilliant back grounds and skies with this medium. and ‘trees’ my favourite thing to draw, end up with life oozing out of them. Have been trying to paint for 15 years now, but still cannot ‘see’ properly.
Loved the show of the folk applying gold leaf. before applying it was it just water that was used or a special medium so that the gold can stick
Many thanks PhyllOctober 4, 2015 at 5:00 pm #59589
I have been trying to learn to paint with acrylics for a few years, however I’m not too happy with the results. I’m currently playing with a mixed media approach of acrylics and collage – both to build up an interesting surface just like Shazia Imran – and to collage in some coloured pencil pieces to create more detail in a way that is better than I can do with a brush.
As for a specific brand Liquitex Matte medium is my favourite for both working with acrylic glazes and attaching paper collage pieces.

Water colours – I like and enjoy working with the lovely water colours – its a very interesting medium with very unsual n amazing results. The colour transparency is great and has very effective layering effect – if done rightly.May 11, 2016 at 2:46 am #73201
I really enjoy Pyrography , Colored Pencils & Water Colors. I experiment many other mediums but those are my three favorates.May 19, 2016 at 7:53 pm #73293
Well as most as started with pencil, charcoal and Ink. I loved black and white and was always striving for realism. Now, many years later, I’m fascinated with colors and mixing mediums. Using high pigment Inks, Gels, And other water base mediums, as well as playing with translucent and opaque mediums. I get overwhelmed and feel like I don’t have enough time to create. Instead of stressing trying to get my artwork to look like my subject, I am experimenting with possibilities. I think an artist can go ” mad” trying to be satisfied with their art. Focus is my goal, in hopes I’ll get there. Not ” mad”, but satisfied, lol.June 4, 2016 at 5:51 am #73507
Love transparent watercolor as well as pen and wash.
