This weeks class was all about creating something using negative painting. I showed them my recently painted works using shells and pebbles to demonstrate what we were trying to achieve.
Firstly we did a great little exercise using circles and 5 layers so that they could firstly get their heads around this funny notion of painting without actually painting the subject but around it. I explained that all painting has elements of positive and negative painting but we were going to paint a work that was negative work until the finishing step when some details could be added to the subject. They then chose from my prop collection of various types of leaves, pebbles, and shells to start their unique work and took it home to complete. I am looking forward to seeing these next week.
Also by me this week - no little foxy tricks from this guy, just a pure watercolour.
