This workshop, will be taught using the Zoom app.

The subject of your painting emerges by painting the negative space around objects. This is a mind-bending and creative process. Understanding this way of creating depth can be applied to any subject matter.

In this workshop you will complete a short demonstration exercise to clarify the process of negative painting. Then you will learn how to develop a negative floral painting on a loosely constructed background. The final product is unique and exciting.
