  ​Lesson 3: Negative Painting Intro - Paint a Daisy

Here's a quick and simple introduction to negative painting.

Simply defined, negative painting is the practice of painting the space around an object, rather than the object itself. It is a great skill to learn as it helps an artist learn to view images as shapes and contours, and in watercolor it is sometimes the only way to keep areas of a painting light in value, while darkening the values around the object.
