Abstract Negative Painting


There's a really interesting tutorial this month on Wet Canvas about spring flowers and negative painting.Since I was thoroughly unhappy with my painting practice this week, I thought I'd give this a try ... Here's the link (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=544498) ...And my results are above. I'll be playing with this some more when I'm not so tired .. Negative painting really makes me twist my mind in different directions! LOL

Really neat Lin. I too think this is a very difficult technique to get my head around. You've done a good job and I like the abstract feel. Hope you get to paint in a more relaxed way this weekend.
Hugs,
Lorraine

Negative sure puts a new light on our thinking for sure. It's pretty.

Oh Lin,
This is lovely - I love your blog and your style.

Negative painting is really thought provoking, it makes us think of the background as defining the object. It might be better done on drugs, and since I dont do drugs its a challenge!

Brave soul you are! I find negative painting to be completely different from "positive" painting - more difficult!

I was tempted to give this a try when I saw it posted. I still may. You did a nice job on all the negative painting.
