Positive and Negative Painting - What’s hiding in

the background?  with Karen Brungardt

 

Register

Wednesdays, August 19, 26, and September 2

9 am - 4 pm

All Levels Cost $95

You will learn how to develop your ability to “paint around” aka Negative painting to develop depth and complicated backgrounds while having fun doing so. This class will be three sessions. The first session will be learning to bring shapes by painting around a shape, instead of directly painting the shape to hone your skills to do a complete painting. We will then start a painting of fruit on a tree to truly learn how to negative paint to bring out depth and interesting shapes.

All Levels Cost $95

Student must bring own supplies.Teacher will supply reference drawings and graphite paper to be used in transferring drawings. Karen will also have paint to share if you don’t have all the colors.

In this class, we’ll start with 3 primary colors and develop the painting from the underlying color base, applying skills such as masking, negative painting (aka painting around), glazing colors and other techniques.

Although pouring usually involves several layers of masking and pouring liquid colors, in this class, all the work will be done with one layer of masking and then all brush work! It’ll look like it was poured when done, but without the mess.
