One of the strengths of Painting with Mixed Media is the sheer number of techniques it demonstrates, including: painting, drawing, layering, collaging, texturizing, sgraffito, create peeled paint effect, monoprinting, frottage, rubbing, slicing, weaving and more!

As nouns the difference between portrait and portraiture is that portrait is a painting or other picture of a person, especially the head and shoulders while portraiture is a portrait; a likeness; a painted resemblance; hence, that which is copied from some example or model.
