White Rose


The contrast between the white, orange and green in this arrangement is striking. I wanted the painting to look just as striking. Here, again, the trick is to create the white rose with out using white paint. I left the space  for the white rose the white of the paper. The last step was to paint the shadow between the rose petals with light green paint. This technique is called “negative space painting.”  This technique can be tricky since it is like thinking backward. For me, it requires uninterrupted concentration.
