Negative Space

I am super excited to be taking this class. You are awesome!  You may notice that half of the page looks different than the other. I watched half the video, painted and then watched the rest of the video. I also colored half of the stem on one of the leaves.Oh well great practice!

I also had trouble keeping the puddle of water and adding paint to this? Does that make sense? Oh I did add a little salt.


Here is some practice with mixing colors an learing to keep the water puddle to just enough...


Negative Space again


I need to add a few finishing details with acrylic paint. This is a ticket Idea I have been working on for a few years...I keep working on the ame ideas and as I learn I keep chaning it untill I have something that feels right.

Masking tape

I just want to say that this is the first time I used this stuff. I walked past it many times at the store and had this idea of what is it used for and maybe I need to try it....not sure why... and here we are thank Ana. I tried and the wetting your brush every 30 seconds helps. but I had a big ball in mine at the top. It was like a dried up piece of glue. The masking fluid was thick at first but I shook it a bit.  I well... you please tell me what I can improve on. I knew I messed up and gave up wihen I got to the watercoloring. I felt sand but you know I am learning and I now realize that I shoudl have listened to that curiosity before.   I was embarassed with showing my mess but now I am emarassed for the tantrum I had.


I should have used negative space for the moon.

Acrylic Paint


I need to play with different size brushes.

This is the fun I want to one day be known for.

I am proud of this piece. I  do see a few things I need to fix the nest time I paint it...


I loved looking up at the cloudss and trying to identify the shapes...I still do and wanted to explore with shapes.

I love the idea of making clouds by simply painting and then using a cloth to pick up the paint leaving these fabulous clouds.

Here is a sample of this.


I wanted to practice your method here and started with this painting and then almost through it away.

Thank goodnes I came to my senses.


I love the colors. I will play around with this some more.


Tried to work in the shapes here. Well I had fun for my first try.  Clearly I went wrong here but I jut had to share it. I  used the worng brush and needed to use darker shades of  blue.  I will use shades of blue the next time I do this.

One more try


Much better... I used a paper towel to create clouds and I love the texture I creaated. The very top is with practice and gives me lots of ways sto play in terms of creating those lovely shapes that I love looking at in the sky.

Here is my experiments.


I love the alcohol one and the glitter the best.

You can see the glitter better here.


I am so in love with the idea of creating big letters with the alcohol!

My final piece


Here is what I used.

The OMAU which means think in Japanese was done with negative space.

The cloud was done with masking fuid.

I am excited with all that I have learned in this class! I have learned so many skills and need to keep on painting. I often lbog my experience here  

Thanls Ana for an amazing class and thank you classmates for creating awesome work! You have amazing art so join me in sharing with the world.

For now I will post my progress and experience on my blog and will keep practicing to eventually sell my art.
