Mixed Media Art by Sandra Stowell, PTArtist
I will try to keep this current with various new work, that will be organized into other folders after a few months!
Works in graphite and/or colored pencil, pastels, watercolor, ink, and some acrylic. I often enhance a pencil drawing with water soluble graphite, or a subtle touch of color. I rarely complete a painting without drawing too. I may use watercolor pencil or soluble graphite. I reach for whatever is at hand that should do the job!
Much of my work IS mixed media, but these works are really really mixed media, and would not be feasible otherwise! Some pieces incorporate digital resizing or transformation, printed and layered with other media. Some art 2-D some 3-D, and some are best left virtual/digital!
These are digitally manipulated scans of original drawings, and or my own photos: they are available as archival prints or high resolution images. Some have a single digital transform, most have considerably more manipulation in order to achieve the end result! I crop images, enhance them in various ways, altering the saturation, contrast, hue, and more. I seem to be quite in love with the variations I can generate with this digital tool, and can spend hours playing with these images.
Photos of the artist (at work & not...), some self-portrait works, photos of the studio, etc.
Sculpture in various media, for inside and outdoors.
I work with a variety of printmaking methods, and I am certainly not a purist with any medium or technique! Often my prints are starting points for finished art work that truly satisfies me! Many of my prints are enhanced with colored pencil, ink, paint, or collage additions. I may use multiple printmaking techniques for on one artwork. Some prints become part of larger collages, or are incorporated into 3-D work.
