Watercolour - Negative Techniques

Course Code: ARTS2048

This course is not suitable for beginners.
This course is positively negative! Add this exciting and dramatic approach to your painting repertoire. Working in the negative will energize you and add a whole new level to your creative process. Learn to develop unique images by using the space in and around an object. Create exciting under-paintings and enhance your image with layers, lost and found edges, and textures. Increase the range of values in your painting, moving from light to dark and back again, creating the illusion of depth. Initially, you will learn to "think negatively" through step-by-step demonstrations and exercises. Simplify shapes, create effective compositions and refine your images to achieve painting with dynamic impact. This negative approach is taught primarily using watercolours. Acrylic artists will benefit from this course but are asked to email the instructor prior to the beginning of the course. See material list for details.
