This painting is all about creating interesting and colorful shapes using the negative painting technique. The step by step instruction allows painters of all levels of experience to complete a successful painting. We will be using a wet into wet technique to create the under painting and proceed with carving out geometric shapes in the background. Each time I paint this piece it turns out a little different and that is a good thing. Yours will be your own unique piece of art. Experienced painters will be able to complete their painting in class. Students with less experience will be able to paint at their own pace and complete their painting at home.
