ONE SPOT HAS JUST OPENED UP** Sign up today for this small group/lots of personal attention class…only 5 students max to allow for social distancing.

If you’ve been painting for awhile and still have trouble grasping the concept of negative painting, this watercolor workshop is for you!  You will not be painting flowers and leaves or any “thing”, instead you will learn to paint the space around the flowers and leaves, creating glowing blooms, foliage and layers of depth through multiple glazes. As you develop the skill of negative painting, you will practice seeing “shapes” instead of “things”, learn to save your whites and lights without using masking fluid, and be able to create a full range of values in your paintings without resulting in “muddy” darks.

DAY 1:  Negative painting is a difficult concept to master in that it is contrary to the way we naturally see things.  You will learn exactly what negative painting is (and why it’s a good skill to have) through explanations, examples, demonstrations and practice.

DAY 2:  The emphasis will be on skill development with more demonstrations and lots of painting practice with one-on-one assistance.  Negative painting is a layered technique which requires drying time between glazes, so you may work on two or more paintings at once if desired.  Paper will be provided.  

This class will meet from 9 am to 3:30 pm each day.
