Negative Space Painting 

Create an exciting and whimsical organic negative space painting. The use of negative space is a key element of artistic composition. Using color theory, learn to blend acrylic paints to create interesting negative space areas around the positive space of a tree. Bright, exciting colors emphasize the contrast between postive and negative spaces.
