Negative Painting – flowers


This is a technique that Jean Haines taught me a few years ago. You take a clean piece of paper and just splotch it all up with colors that you like. Then you start painting in the shadows. It’s a very soothing way to paint. This particular painting was inspired by the lovely bouquet my husband made for our table that day, but I did not paint any of the actual flowers, mine are all imaginary ones. This painting has been sold.

    Catherine,
    most of them are not hanging. Although the walls are full, indeed.

    I could EAT those flowers! Tastey morsels, they look to be. Do you really have enough wall space to hang all these pics you show us?
