Learn to paint luscious, expressive flowers using negative painting. Painting negative shapes (the shapes that occupy the space around objects) is the quickest way to take your paintings to the next level. This fun workshop will help you understand what to look for to paint negative shapes and learn how to create depth in your floral paintings. Demonstrations and exercises will help reinforce what you’ve learned. You will be amazed when flowers “magically” appear as you learn to paint what is NOT the subject of your painting.
