So what are we considering Mixed Media?

YAY - amazing how quick the Admins did this. OK so we now have a Mixed Media forum....would you consider a painting that has both Acrylic and Oil on it as a mixed media? Or would that be still just oil because on the finished piece it is only the oil that is seen?

My first thought is to say that it would not be considered mixed. My second thought is that it might be. My third thought is that someone else might know.

Yeah I feel the same way, I don't know. I guess maybe a better question is what would be Mixed Media? Maybe something like a drawing done in ink and something else like charcoal and both media's are visible on the picture?

I think oil and acrylic are too similar to be considered mixed media.
If it were water colour and oil, used in distinctively different ways on a piece, then sure.
True mixed media (IMO) would be completely different media, e.g. colour pencil with a collage or marker pen and poster paint.
Collages are usally mixed media, often involving the use of paint as-well as paper cuttings or photos.

At least I think so.

Fine by me. I really don't pay too much attention to where posts are on the forum because I check all the post from "new posts" in the menu and don't even notice the category they are in.

To me, a mixed media would include what CJM1972 suggested and anything done with i.e., charcoal and/or pastel and/or cp and/or paint media.

Grateful to Jesus for everything!

IMO (which along with $1.50 will get you a 7-11 coffee) anytime you use 2 different medium in the same finished picture it's mixed media. This does not include using graphite for drawing a sketch before you paint... since the graphite doesn't directly enhance the finished picture in any way. Neither would an undersketch of graphite in a pen drawing for example. But in my drawing of "Solitude" I used Graphite, Pen, and some white Acrylic paint for the highlights.. This would be mixed media.

Again this is just my opinion..
