    @3choBlast3r that’s cuz some of my teachers come from turkey and they talk about ebru art and they show middle schooler’s how to make them.

  18. 3choBlast3r says:

    @Aurux40215 Really .. does your school often learn you about other peoples cultures or are you simply studying on one of the many Turkish funded public schools in the US?

    This is the first time I really understood negative painting. I appreciate your video very much!

  27. spongebobnik says:

    Wow, this is not easy to do but each time that you do another painting, you learn. This is a really great exercise for novice watercolor painters to learn about pigment strength and what water does. We are really not always aware of how much water has been soaked up by the paper and then how much more we can safely add. Thanks also for the tips along the way.

    This is a wonderful demo of negative painting. I appreciate your knowledge and willingness to share, thus encouraging others.

  29. MrHroark says:

    Thank you.
    Hideaway is exquisite…I hope you will demonstrate one like it sometimes.
    God bless

    To see a negative painting of a landscape, go to my website at Then go to the Art Gallery page and look for a painting called “Hideaway” in the Negative Painting section. –Elizabeth

  31. MrHroark says:

    Nicely done Elizabeth…and I must admit too, that negative painting in watercolor is something I struggled with as well…near to the point of forgetting the medium. I would very much like to see how you put this all together in a landscape.
    Thank YOU again.
    God bless
