Negative Painting

Looking at tutorials on youtube and checking out books from the library, I am learning a new technique called Negative Painting. In essence, negative painting is forming images by outlining them instead of filling them in. These are my first pieces.

My daughter claimed the very first one I made.

This second one is my favorite so far because I love these colors.

My daughter said the shapes behind the yin yang look like ghosts, which inspired me to name this painting "Spirit of Yin Yang"
