Painting with natural & neutral textures
Look to the earth for inspiration and guidance while learning to incorporate colors and textures of the natural world into your expanding mixed-media practice.
There really is no limit to the materials available to us: dirt, sand, seeds, bark, leaves, grasses, etc. can lend texture and natural color to our work—or simply learn to mix color with the natural world as your guide! Possibilities include new forays into mosaic as well as yet-to-be-discovered assemblage exploration.

Perfect for artists of all skill levels!
