Negative Space Painting

YouTube is such an amazing resource for learning just about anything from changing your brake lights to speaking a new language and (of course) learning art techniques as well. These paintings were done using a technique I saw on the @makoccinos channel.

The idea of this technique is to start with the lightest color and then keep painting the negative space that’s around the shape you want in an increasingly darker shade. You end with the darkest color and layers and layers of paint underneath which gives the finished painting so much depth.
