    NEGATIVE PAINTING FOR POSITIVE EFFECTS! 

    REGISTER HERE:   REGISTRATION OPEN--Tina Stallard, NMWS,Negative Painting Workshop Southern Chapter Feb 13-14, 2020 Workshop

    In this two day workshop being in a Negative space is not a bad thing! We will be discussing and working with negative space, an area of a painting that is so often over looked. What is negative space? It is that area around the image you are painting the background and spaces in between.

    Negative space has so many possibilities from creating interesting and exciting darks to beautiful lost and found lines and even improving paintings that are almost done but need something more.Glendlough, Ireland

    We will spend day one getting to understand negative space with a few exercises and prepping for paintings the next day.

    I love teaching this technique, it can be a very effective tool if you are trying to loosen up and for taking your paintings to the next level. I am looking forward to exploring the balance between Negative and Positive space with you and I know you all will find something positive about negative space!

    Things you will need:

    • Paints (good quality, I use Daniel Smiths but Winsor Newton and Holbein are also good)
    • Paper cut into two (2) 9 x 12 and two (2) 11 x 14 (good quality, I use Arches 140#)
    • Brushes
    • Water container
    • Paper towels

    I will provide reference photos of subject matter but if you would like to bring your own please print your reference photo out in a 9 x 12. Make your reference photo simple like a flower, animal or small still life. It is easier to study the technique if your subject is not too complicated.

    Over the Fence by Tina StallardIf you have any questions about the supply list please feel free to email me at: tmstallard[at]comcast.net

    I am so looking forward to meeting you all and sharing and painting together.  For printable information, download the Workshop Flyer and Tina's bio.

    Juried SC Spring exhibit runs from April 3 – May 23, 2020 @ the Branigan Cultural Center, 501 N. Main Street, Las Cruces, NM  88001

    DOWNLOAD PROSPECTUS: 2020_04_SC Spring Show Prospectus_Branigan.pdf

    Theme is: “Rough and Tumble: Life in a Desert Town”.   The desert can be a rough place:  thorns, goat heads, scorpions, rattlesnakes, the blistering sun baking the land or tumbleweed blowing in fierce winds.  For centuries people have lived and thrived here. This theme speaks to the human history of survival in this region, and the wonder of this place (and not only in delicate flowers emerging from a hostile land).   We are thrilled by jagged peaks of rocks against a blue sky, carved out areas of mining-created “beauty”, or smooth river rocks in a dry riverbed, tumbled by flash floods and ice. Indoors or outdoors, life in a desert town can be rough and tumble and the artwork will inspire artists to respond creatively to this multi-faceted topic.
