Bumble Bee watercolor Painting

I drew where I want the bee very lightly then I painted the sky colors letting them bleed together wet into wet. After the colors had dried a added a second wash in areas around the wings to create a negative image.
Simply defined, negative painting is the practice of painting the space around an object, rather than the object itself. It is a great skill to learn as it helps an artist learn to view images as shapes and contours, and in watercolor it is sometimes the only way to keep areas of a painting light in value, while darkening the values around the object.
