Mixed Media

Mixed media is a term that refers to painting techniques where I use different mediums in a single composition for example, ink, charcoal and pastel or collage that consist of handmade paper, staples, ink and gouache. Sometimes they are a preliminary to a multi-layered oil painting but mostly they are work in own right.
