Negative Painting

Beliefs   watercolor   18 x 19.5
Sometimes, especially in watercolor, intricate things are best described by the holes in them, or the space around them. This is especially true for things such as lace and garden fences. (Is there a life metaphor here?) This was the class lesson for "Beliefs". We were studying reliefs, raised surfaces, and how they are described by the light hitting them. I like to call this concept the "to's and the fro's". I paired up this iron garden cross with mineolas which were in season. Using a limited palette always pleases me. I am pleased with the result.
