Watercolor Negative Painting: “Cityscape”
Watercolor Attempt #20
This week, I viewed several YouTube tutorials on “negative watercolor painting.”
I was intrigued by the title, learning quickly that it’s not a reference to one’s attitude. Instead, it ‘s a style of backward painting, or painting outside the lines/edges of a picture. Another way to describe it is coloring in the negative spaces, using multiple layers.
This technique fosters an impressionistic or fantasy feel.
My watercolor painting was inspired by Sydney Harper’s, “Rooftops.”
