Module 5. Adding by Taking Away

Negative space in a painting is space that is intentionally left unpainted to create a desired effect. I have found that this technique can be a bit tricky to use as it requires some planning. But it is also wonderful for creating expansive vistas and distinctive landscape features. 

This module includes 11 video lessons and covers:

  • Using Negative Space to Create an Expansive Vista

  • Using Negative Space to Create a Landscape Feature

Module 7. Painting Sunlight

Dark, stormy skies are evocative and often create real emotion in landscapes. But direct sunlight, painted with rich warm colors can actually do the same. Learn how to incorporate a blazing sun near dusk or dawn, and lift out paint to create rays of light as they peek through the trees.
