Negative space is all of the empty space around the subject of your drawing. I found the negative space in my cut out by looking at the difference between the darker pink side and the lighter yellow side. Seeing the negative space can help an artist make sure their work is symmetrical. It can also help with realizing if there is a flaw in your positive space or subject of your drawing. Seeing negative space can enhance a drawing because it can make the positive space in the drawing pop out and become more noticeable.
