Demonstration and workshop of Mixed Media by Tony Montague  using Alcohol coloured pens on tracing paper and plastic drawing film.

Random lines of red, blue and yellow draw on tracing paper then methylated spirits is dropped on to the paper which pushes back the colour. A defuser can be used to produce a fine spray of meths to cause a mottled effect.

Two of his paintings using this method.

Another method he demonstrated was to paint thin tissue paper with watercolour paint and use this as collage material.

This is Norma making an excellent collage using this method.

I tried using the alcohol pens on canvas board but after the initial  ink work separated with the meths
all the texture soaked into the canvas. I then using black sharpie to define the design and then some tube acrylics were added.

Added clear tissue to the background to try and give a sense of depth.
North Shields Fish Quay 20 x 16 inches on canvas board.

Really good session and Tony is an excellent demonstrator.
