ENRICH-0651 – Art Zoom: Negative Painting With Watercolors (ENRICH-0651_NEGA)

Jumping Into the Fall Leaves: "Negative" Painting with Watercolors

Do you love seeing piles of colorful fall leaves and either want to jump into them or paint them in watercolor? Join artist Judith Cassel-Mamet in this one-session zoom workshop to explore a watercolor technique that creates a sense of layers: perfect for a pile of leaves! No experience in watercolor is necessary as you learn how to paint the negative spaces and create delightful images. Work with various shades (values) of paint and learn how to emphasize edges. Create a few of these negative paintings together, then play with this technique on your own. “The smaller format for these paintings lends itself to personal greeting cards which sets you up for the holiday season,” Cassel-Mamet says. Students are led through the steps and encouraged to practice with their own unique expression. Cassel-Mamet always encourages each student to find joy in the process rather than look for perfection, and negative painting provides a terrific vehicle for great, fluid fun! An art supply list is provided upon registration. If you love the loose and fluid look of watercolor painting and want to try a new technique, this workshop is for you!
