- What is Mixed Media?
When browsing through the beautiful paintings and drawings featured in our online gallery, you may have noticed that some original artwork is described as created using 'mixed media', but what does this actually mean?
Mixed media visual art is essentially the combining of two or more media or materials, and can take numerous forms, but can be broadly categorised into five types:
- A Brief History of Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday
In modern Britain the more often, and more commercially, referred to 'Mother's Day', is the fourth Sunday of lent and was traditionally known as Mothering Sunday. It has been observed by both Christian and Roman Catholic Churches since the Middle Ages and the UK is even believed to be the first country in the world to have dedicated a day for mothers.
- The Power of Colour
Colour is key, whether you are selecting a new car, a fresh colour scheme for your home, or an item of clothing. It is something which we give great consideration to, and with good reason.
Russian painter and theorist Wassily Kandinksy is purported to have once said “colour is a power which directly influences the soul”, and therefore has the ability to influence our moods, emotions and even actions.
- Colours of Autumn and How the Changing Seasons have Influenced Art Through History
As we make our way through October, the glorious colours of Autumn start to transform the landscape and the spectacular scenery and changing colours of our local New Forest National Park is hard to top.
The woodlands and hedgerows are abundant with colour, from deeply hued plump ripened berries and chestnuts, to the fiery glow of leaves as their green pigment breaks down, revealing the red and yellow tints below.
- Colour Schemes to Help You Study
The new school year is here and - along with having all the necessary uniforms, books and supplies – it is important to ensure having a productive space in which to study.
Whether it's on campus, in dorms, or in the home, a space to be able to concentrate, work and be creative is essential...Something that can make an instant difference to a space is the application of colour – from the hue of the walls, the furniture and soft accessories, to the artwork on the walls – it can all have an effect on mood and productivity.
