After the demo, incorporating negative painting into a picture.

Good morning friends,
after demonstrating the hearts, I thought I'd show you how you can incorporate some negative painting into a picture.

So here is my painting - if you look closely, you will see where the negative painting has been applied. Remember, negative painting is where I paint the area around the object and not the object itself.
Or you could just sit back and enjoy the view.

Queen of the Lilypad

Painted on Saunders Waterford, 140lb Rough.


  1. Pat this is a lovely example of negative painting - the lily pad really stands out because of the darks that surround it. Hope you have a wonderful day. Hugs!

  2. He's adorable. I like the sparkling light.

  3. Lovely work, Pat and thank u for sharing the technique! You get better and better!! You can run a workshop for us.
    Best wishes, Sadami

  4. Pat, there is so much personality in this little Queen! Well done!

  5. a fascinating technique and a wonderful painting

  6. Interesting. I love the frog!

  7. This is a gorgeous painting Pat. I've just finished a drawing of Snowdrops and the only way I could keep their white colour was negative drawing so this was a timely post for me. Lovely work. ;-)
