Using Tissue Paper & Gesso For Rocky Textures

In this video, artist Vinita Pappas showcases her unique technique using mixed media elements on a 15 by 22 inch sheet of arches cold press watercolor paper. Using regular tissue paper and white acrylic gesso, she creates a gathered skirt-like effect that will resist watercolor paint and provide areas for acrylic paint and collage. Vinita expertly applies the gesso with a putty knife to create a stunning abstract landscape. With Pappas' expert guidance, you can create your own unique and captivating mixed-media painting that will add a pop of color to any painting.
