Negative Peony spaces

This was another demo from earlier this summer during a workshop on painting peonies...I really like to paint the negative spaces to highlight blossoms, stems and leaves..you can really see that here in the bottom left.  It is the hardest thing to wrap your brain around..we always want to paint what's there (the positive shape) and not the negative...
