The New Mixed Media
Start with your favorite high res digital photo or have your print scanned @ 300 dpi for the finished size of your image.
Using Photoshop or similar program adjust color to your liking then try one of the several art tools available to change
the visual texture of your art. Add an interesting detail or two. Print out on your color printer - Voila! your very own New Mixed Media artwork. If you want to take it to the next level have a giclee on stretched canvas produced of your work. Over paint with a medium to heavy clear Gel coat. Let dry, then using your acrylic paints, enhance the existing colors, add images or whatever, until your tummy tells you to stop. Finally, if you like what you see, rescan, make final adjustments and print your artist proof #2. In this way you could produce a series of different images from one original.
