Negative painting for beginners

Keep it simple (also included in Young at Heart)

Keep it fun and simple.

These lessons are designed to introduce the color wheel and complimentary colors.

Instead of painting what we see, learn to paint the spaces in between the lines, with controlling the brush, and the amount of water you apply.
