Painting Around the White
This is the second project I am doing from Mary Todd Beam's book "Celebrate Your Creative Self!" This lesson and project is "painting around the white." In the book she says: With this technique you isolate the white shapes and hold them as positive shapes, painting the negative background shapes. I have done a lot of negative painting, but I have never approached it exactly like this. I did this same subject a few months ago in an entirely different approach - a traditional approach. This painting is looser than that first one. Although it is still tight by many standards, this one, especially the background is much less tight.
