Why stay with a single artistic discipline when you can combine them and generate a living composition, created with mixed techniques? Jo Jiménez is a visual artist whose style is characterized by mixing materials on different supports. He makes illustrations with watercolor and acrylic, and embroiders floral motifs, blurring the boundaries between both disciplines.

In this course you will learn basic techniques of acrylic painting and embroidery and then bring that knowledge to your own composition. Jo will teach you how to mix both techniques to bring your illustration to life in a frame made by you from a paint frame.

Jo will introduce you to the materials he usually works with and their characteristics. It will start with the materials for your illustrations, acrylic and paint pens. In addition, it will show you which brushes are appropriate for painting on canvas.

Then he will show you the materials he likes most for embroidery, threads and wool. You will learn their favorite embroidery stitches and how to use them to make according to what details.

You will build your own XL frame from one of paint, and you will see the pros and cons of this great format.

Before you start painting, you will make an introduction to basic concepts about composition, which will serve you for all your creations.
