NEGATIVE PAINTING with WATERCOLOR
Discover the dynamic results of negative painting! Learn how to suggest shapes by painting around them, and avoid overworked painting. Learn techniques for creating overlapping and interlocking shapes, and lost edges. Gain an understanding of color theory (directly related to watercolor pigments) and improve your paintings with rich, loose and glowing colors, glazing, wet into wet, charging colors and more! Learn to be inventive and take your paintings to the next level. Students will benefit from informative demonstrations, friendly critiques, and one on one help.
