Painting Technique - Paint the Negative Space

When using acrylic fiber paint you can add layers of visible light coloring material to increase the definition of a pale area. However another option is to paint in the negative country to foreground the pale area.

This is a very good technique and can do your pictures more interesting. It is also an easy mode to add item to a level country of colour.

Painting the country behind the physical physical physical physical object in this manner it gives you the opportunity to better the form of the object and gives the chief object a more than defined look.

What is negative space?

The negative space is the space left once you have got ignored/removed an object.

There are a few classic negative space pictures. My front-runner is two caputs facing each other and the space between them giving the form of a long stemmed glass. The negative space is the glass shaped area.

How to make it

Always seek to direct contrast visible light and dark countries in a picture. When you have got this sort of direct contrast it is easy to paint in some of the negative countries because 1 of the abutting subdivisions will be in a darker colour.

(I believe that it is more than successful to paint in negative countries with a darker colour, but if you desire to seek to utilize a lighter coloring material over a darker 1 be certain to utilize the paint more thickly.)

A landscape illustration could be to paint in a dark coloring material (behind a pale one) to do the top of the pale country jagged; this do the pale country expression more grass like.

In this illustration the darker coloring material was the negative country behind the grasses. Then intermix the dark coloring material up into the negative space using H2O to thin it. By leaving a darker border next to the pale coloring material you acquire a nice direct contrast too.

Use this technique

To add definition to any countries you experience demands it. It would be good for darkening the country to the side of a tree tree tree trunk and do the trunk base out a spot more. Ideal for the tree tree tree tree trunk of a Ag birch, just add some other darkness sunglasses to the country at the side of the trunk to give the trunk more than direct direct contrast and this assists to do the trunk more three dimensional too.

It is great for wood pictures as you can suggest at more trees in the background without giving them too much detail.

Top Tip - the top contrast countries are always in the foreground of a picture. Brand certain you have got the direct direct contrast between the colors suitable for the distance in the painting, i.e. not too much contrast for countries in the distance.
