About This Class


Welcome to my 4th painting class! In this class, I am going to show you how to paint a mixed media abstract landscape using colored pencil, acrylic paint and charcoal/chalk pastels! There are many different ways to create a mixed media piece but this is a great place to start. 

This class is intended for those who have taken my other painting classes and/or for those who have painting experience and want to learn a new technique to incorporate into their painting practice. However, if you are a beginner or new to my classes, I recommend taking my classes in the order below:

1. Acrylic Painting: Learn The Basics For Beginners

2. Acrylic Painting: How To Paint An Abstract Landscape

3. Acrylic Painting: How to Paint Using a Limited Color Palette

4. Acrylic Painting: Explore A New Composition Using A Reference Photo 

5. Acrylic Painting: How To Create A Mixed Media Painting (this class)

In this class, you will learn:

  • How to use charcoal and chalk pastels to create a mixed media painting.
  • My favorite paints and brushes to use.
  • You will see (and hear) my painting process from start to finish.

At the end of this class, you will have a new trick to add to your arsenal of painting skills! This is a really fun way to experiment in your work. Have fun!!

IMPORTANT: The paintings you create from my class examples are for learning/educational purposes only. Those paintings or ones heavily inspired by my class example (or my other work) cannot be sold or reproduced in any way. All of my work is copyrighted and that is a violation of the copyright. Please stick to painting from my class examples only (not from other work on my website) or work from your own inspiration photos.
