Layering Wet Into Wet with Negative Painting – Linda Kemp
Controlling the Uncontrollable

Linda KempVirtual Demo Evening
Monday, November 2 – 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

In this live Zoom demonstration Linda Kemp will create a multi-layered, watercolour from start to finish!
The presentation will begin with a brief explanation about negative and positive approaches to painting. Linda will also display reference material and visual aids to explain her process and plan before the painting begins.
Once the paint starts to flow you will see her direct application of colour on wet paper to build autumnal foliage and berry shapes. By using fresh paint and without drying between layers, it will be a game of controlling the uncontrollable.

Join us to see what sort of mischief she can get into. A question and answer session will follow
