Effective Design and Negative Painting: Tips from Linda Kemp

Thereís a special, little-known park about 20 miles from my home, where each Spring I take a hiking trip. Itís completely quiet except for a handful of birds that sing in the distance. The forest floor is a carpet of flowers and greenery, ancient trees stand tall, a footbridge crosses the small, snaking creek that hides fossils and carries minnows, and horse hoofprints mark the path. It feels like a sacred space.

The nature-inspired watercolor paintings of Linda Kemp remind me of a small patch of a sandbar here, where Iíve sat many times. I think itís because her paintings represent something bigger; they show a piece of a puzzle in a unique way that still captures the tranquil moments Iíve experienced. Kemp is known for using negative painting techniques, which she teaches in her newest book, Simplifying Design and Color for Artists: Positive Results Using Negative Painting Techniques.
