Club 47 Challenge - Day 41 - Creative Monday Challenge #31 - Negative Painting

OLD WAGON
Original Watercolor - 11x15
$60 - Buy Here

The Creative Challenge this week was to use negative painting for your main subject. I began this painitng with wet paper and appled colors randomly - yellow ochrs, cerulean blue and mauve. When all was dry I sketched in the old wagon and painted around the shape, using the same color as the background in that area to provide unity and avoid muddy colors.

Kindness # 41 - I emailed a friend whose sister is having surgery - a hard thing to go through with a sibling.
