This was one of my first efforts at "negative painting." It is very tight, but is a good example if I am trying to teach the concept, and I like the abstract approach and the limited palette (fall colors) and I tried to balance the color areas. The leaves are very stiff because I drew them from my mind rather than from life, though I like the way the eye is drawn to the yellow area in the center, which is the focal point.
All in all, today I see many problems with this painting, but it was a good learning tool at the time.
