Lesson 3: Monochromatic Painting focusing on Negative Space

Yes, I’m back from Shanghai and it was a crazy trip! Alright, back to this post, we continue to focus on monochromatic painting (using 1 colour) but this time round, we focused on the negative spaces (black area) by painting the entire canvas black before scrapping off the black paint revealing the white canvas in the form of the white spaces! Cool yeah? But the scrapping part was rather tedious as it involves using either (1) water, (2) sand paper, (3) palette knife, (4) wet wipes, (5) wet cloth or a combination of all these! Haha. This painting is not done, there are 3 objects and I only managed to paint 2 and the second weird shape vase is not even done. Bah.
