Negative Painting

Negative Painting

This when you define a subject by painting around the the subject to create it’s shape as opposed to painting the subject itself. As in the beautiful painting on the right by Krista Hasson, the daisies are just mainly the white of the paper and the outline is produced by painting the background. This is commonly used in watercolour painting as a light colour cannot cover a darker colour.
