No Shenanigans! Mixed media tutorials from start to finish by Mimi Bondi

This video tutorial is suitable for you if you...

• are a beginner artist (no experience needed!) who wants clear instructions
• feel stuck creatively and would like to try a new style
• don’t want to, or can’t, buy a huge amount of art supplies
• think that painting is hard or you are not the creative type
• feel overwhelmed by the amount of information out there
• want to really learn how an artist creates her paintings, with genuine tutorials (no fluffy or distracting content)


What is this mixed media tutorial about?

It's about a style of painting I truly love because you really can’t go wrong with it.
The vibrant colours we are going to use together create a fresh and fun palette that is bound to make you feel happy!

A big focal point is not always needed in a painting. In this chapter I will show you how to create several focal points, forcing you to embrace the painting as a whole.

As circles have always been powerful symbols for a lot of people (I add them everywhere in my art), we will use them to create energy and bounce, with various mediums and tools.

The end result reminds me of mountains of colourful ice-cream! Yum, yum... I know you know what I mean...!

Ready? Put your favourite music on, light up a scented candle and let’s have fun with paint!
