How To Use Positive And Negative Space To Create Better Painting

Click here for article

In learning about positive and negative space, one thing that I was introduced to in reading this article was using color to create a blending effect between the two.

Reading this article helps me think of different ways to structure my Gestalt designs and how to manipulate colors and positioning to bring into focus various elements.
