Workshop Content: Discover how to start, build and complete watercolour nature’s patterns and florals as you learn the essential skills of negative painting. In this three day Zoom workshop you will discover how to paint delicate blossoms and foliage. All it takes is a simple shift in the way you see! Linda will demonstrate and lead you step-by-step through the key exercises and basic tactics of working with this unconventional, inspiring approach.
Topics covered in this program include, interpreting your subject matter, negative painting strategies, simplified design, basic colour concepts, and “seeing” for painting. You will learn how to reduce your subject into simplified shapes, create purposeful underpaintings and practice the glazing techniques used for layering negative shapes. On the first day, we develop control by working on dry paper, in readiness for the thrill of building wet into wet layers on the following two days.
Our time together will include video demonstration, hands-on painting time and live discussion about how to apply negative painting concepts to your favourite subjects.
Once you learn the basics you will see and paint the world in an exciting and different way!
Lessons: Linda will be presenting to us Live from Canada on Zoom from 10:00 am-1:00pm each day. Participants may either join other students at Chota where we will project the Zoom to a large screen or participate from home. After Linda drops off at 1:00 pm, students may stay to work on their project in the classroom or go home early. At the end of the day, students are invited to email a photo of their work to Linda for critique. Then, we’ll start the next morning with Q&A before carrying on with her instruction.
