This particular style of painting surprised me. I have never been to special classes for drawing and painting. I came across this style of painting, called the negative painting recently and was surprised. One can say that it is backwards of what you would do normally. When we hold the brush, we generally start by making the object but not so for negative painting. In this, we start with the background.
One can develop their own styles for doing negative painting.You can use either acrylic or water paints.
The one I recently tried on is in the picture.
Please do go ahead and try this. It is simple, easy and involves having a lot of fun.
Also feel free to comment.
