As artists we use negative painting quite often without thinking about. It can become very automatic. Artists develop approaches for painting the negative space that “works” for them. No one approach is better than the other, but the results can be different. It’s the outer boundary, or inner boundary that has to convey the correct symbolism. This is the artists job.
In this lesson, using rough texture, we will learn how to paint a fall tree in front of a backdrop. The backdrop may represent different objects or shapes depending on the environment. The creation of the rough texture will be a result of the following components.
1. The amount of water involved.
2. Consistency of the paint. (see #1)
3. Dampness or wetness of the paper (see #1)
4. Angle or orientation of the brush
5. Speed of the brush
Once the final shape is done, an approach called “Once and Get Out” is used. It will make sense once you have put it to use and more likely than not, you will find numerous places for it. Join Paul for this interesting approach and see if you can’t add it to your own work.
Fee: $30 all materials included
Class will be limited to 8 participants for social distancing.
