Today I wrestled a bit with this one, but what I like about all this painting experience that I have ‘under my belt’ so to speak, is that I just keep going, until something acceptable shows up. It doesn’t have to be great. But even if I would paint the whole thing black, with just some white and some colors peeping through, it would be good enough.
Today another painting in my art diary.
I have painted a lot of paintings using the principle of ‘negative space’. Making colorful paintings, and then covering up a lot of it. The pieces that are not covered ‘pop up’ more – because the rest of it is covered, they get extra attention.
I always used white or other colors to create negative space, never black!
And all of a sudden, today, I painted black around colorful spots. Why didn’t I invent this before?
