Watercolor Study in Shapes
In our Chris Leeper workshop last week, he taught us to paint positive and negative shapes directly on the paper - one at a time - eventually pulling the painting together. I selected a photo I had taken some time ago because it has strong darks and lights. It did come together and at one place in the process, I questioned that it would. This was an excellent exercise and I plan to do this often. This painting is done on 1/8 of a sheet of Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
