Mixed Media Mittens

Mixed Media Mittens - student project

This was a fun project to do! This three-class workshop has been a really good introduction to gouache and I really like the way each instructor presented a slightly different take on this medium. I designed my mitten painting with my two grandsons in mind, although hanging their mittens up to dry after a day in the snow is pure fiction. They are much more likely to be rolled into frozen little bundles in a corner of the garage! I decided to use the complementary colors blue and orange to keep color mixing simple (and because I only own a few gouache paint colors at this point!). Alanna's class was easy to follow and I liked being able to add details with colored pencil.
