Negative Painting Exercise
20 January 2014 / Workshops
Today we tried our hand on an exercise I had done first time in 2007, the year I started painting. I can’t believe that it is such a long time ago.
All students came to class with a canvas prepared with black Gesso. It was easy to sketch up the negative lines of the artwork with some white pencil and every student approached it in a different strategy. But the we got confused which line was what and some of us had to correct the initial design to see the clearer picture.
and here is the original artwork that inspired us to the negative painting exercise
