Mixed media is usually used by Eddy to enhance a traditional piece after completion. Almost like post production on a film. The traditional piece will be scanned and then digital layers are added. Often this is simply colour but sometimes elements may be changed, things removed or things added in to enhance the end result or nudge the mood in another direction.
Traditional for Eddy is usually pen and ink, watercolour, pencil or sometimes something like lino-cut. He is also starting to explore oils.
These types of media will be used where expression, character and emotion are the order of the day.
As a result of working in the graphic design industry Eddy has picked up the skill of digital painting. A digital pen and pad will be used with Photoshop to paint a scene, manipulate photos or both. These techniques are handy where accuracy and realism are paramount.
