Nothing says “autumn” more than the glorious colours of the leaves changing.

In this workshop you will learn a beautiful technique known as “negative painting”. Typically when working in watercolour we paint “in the positive”, meaning we add one shape on top of another. Negative painting is an intriguing, alternative approach in which the subject is established by painting around the object rather than by painting the object itself. In other words, you define various objects from close to distant, gradually revealing their shapes gradually and creating more depth and dimension with each layer of color you add. The magic is in the “reveal”!

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Contact CJ at 519-942-2018 or email artist@dancingmoondesigns.ca
