Perfectly Pears and Pumpkins – in a Negative Kind of Way #Watercolor #NegativePainting #Strathmore


In Wednesday’s watercolor class (teacher: Kathy Delumpa Allegri), we practiced negative painting using only three colors, all of which were warm in temperature.  I used Daniel Smith Phthalocyanine Blue, Pyrrol Scarlet, and Qor Indian Yellow.

For the first painting I stayed pretty abstract.  With the second, I paid more attention to where the colors were going, and built up on the negative spaces rather than just carving out more pumpkins.
