Mixed media offers a wealth of opportunities for capturing shape and texture and Chris Forsey explores a wide variety of technical and creative approaches.

He begins with an examination of material and methods, including painting surfaces, mark-making and the use of texture materials such as rollers and tissue paper. He also explains the way in which different media complement the main one of watercolour - wax crayon, oil pastels or acrylic inks. Chris also looks at the combination of acrylic paint and oil pastel.

From here, a discussion of sketching materials and preparatory work develops so that the final image is a considered piece based on observation and notes. Chris also explains the use of colour to capture both weather and the seasons.

Technical matters are covered in a series of demonstrations that include shorelines, river scenes and inland areas. Particularly useful are the explanations of how different media suit different subjects - the brightness of a flower-decked chalkland path captured with watersoluble and oil pastels, for instance.

Further demonstrations include suggestions of how to capture a fleeting moment such as a breaking wave, how to render texture and the use of collage.

This is a thorough and inspiring guide from a confident teacher.
