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?

This is the easiest and most fun technique I know to get an amazing raised texture on a painting...
Let me show you how to create it without any tools or mediums: all you need is a sheet of paper, some paint and your trusty hands!

You are going to love seeing this beautiful abstract piece full of detail, colour and shine develop in front of you!

What I enjo so much about this style of abstract art ist that, because there is no primary focal point, you can truly let your mind wander, using your imagination to interpret what is front of you.

Simply stop and study the texture, admire how the light reflects and how the colours draw you in...
Let yourself relax... Ahhh...

Hang on, first we need to acturally create this gorgeous dreamy painting! Ready???
