TRANSFORMING IMAGERY: NEGATIVE PAINTING EVOLUTION
Indulge in artistic exploration as you learn how to transform literal representations of birds, nature’s patterns and landscapes into evocative, gently abstracted paintings! In this fascinating course, you will learn strategies for creatively interpreting subject matter and negative painting concepts. Discover Linda’s secrets for sequencing layers to evoke a sense of mystery, while discovering how to build with warm and cool light. Linda’s simplified color and design concepts will provide you with fresh approaches to self-expression using luminous transparent and opaque acrylics on canvas, claybord and mylar sheets.
Linda is passionate about teaching others to interpret nature’s patterns and organize what they see. Her innovative strategy for simplifying the complicated and taking an alternative negative (or subtractive) approach to arranging shapes and colors will enlarge your joy and wonder and revolutionize your painting!
