Day two of "yellow" week...this painting was done
at a time in the season when sunflowers were at their
peak...I love painting that way...what's available.
There was a comment linked to yesterday's post
asking if I mask or paint negatively...I've taught some
workshops on this technique and I always say:
"There is nothing negative about negative painting!"
...so there is the answer...alot of negative painting.
I love the way it makes the foreground pop...and if you
are careful with your transparent pigments you can build
up quite a few layers. The lily buds in the upper right hand corner
of this painting were done that way as well.
