This painting is all about creating interesting and colorful shapes using the negative painting technique. The step-by step-instruction allows intermediate and experienced painters to complete a successful painting. We will be using a wet into wet technique to create the under painting and proceed with carving out geometric shapes in the background. Each time I paint this piece it turns out a little different and that is a good thing. Yours will be your own unique piece of art. I expect most paintings to be about 90% completed in class.

• Written instructions and color photo
