Negative shapes

Here's a painting I did to illustrate the idea of painting what is behind an object in order to leave an object.  I painted through everything, and when all was dry, I picked out the area behind the tree branches on the right hand side of the painting.  This is a real adjustment in thinking and requires lots of practice before I started to be able to paint in negatives.  Give it a try!
