Painting the Negative Space!
Today Coochie members enjoyed a fabulous day with tutor Hilary Wakeling, as Hilary demystified the negative space. Our boards were already prepared with gesso, then a dark mother colour and first layer was a gentle blend of harmonious colours of our choice, considering our finished design. Stencils were applied and when dry, black lava flakes were discreetly placed, as well as some opaque white flakes for extra texture. Copper and/or gold acrylic liquid was also dribbled on for extra contrast. The finishing touches will be in the next post.
