Mixed Media

"Natural History #5" by Linda Finn

Found objects are often the initial inspiration for a piece. When working in mixed media, I usually begin by collaging different types of handmade paper on the canvas or board and then applying gel medium to establish a texture. Acrylic paint is then layered over all, alternating warm and cool hues until the work acquires a certain patina. Images and text can be added at anytime in the process.
