Negative Painting

Putting down a light wash of varying colors is easy.  Finding objects by painting the darker background is negative painting.  In this painting, I used warm colors around the focal point and then painted darker background values in cooler colors.    As the values got lighter, I also used more neutral colors as I worked outward to the edges of the paper.  The higher contrast of color and values were then around the focal area.
