wk4: Negative Space

Hello class,

Seeing the negative space as an object which is drawn is an important skill in drawing. A beautifully considered negative space will bring life to all areas of our work.  Seeing the negative space will also make it easier to draw complex forms (draw the trapped shape that is created inside of objects, rather than the objects themselves).

Example of Trapped Space


Draw the shape that is formed inside of the fingers, rather than the hand. It is easier to draw abstracted forms.
