Emmanuel Kouadio Negative Space Project Q4 Art

1) ​What's negative space?

In my opinion negative space is a area of a image or drawing that isn't apart of the drawing and it allows you to focus more on the drawing by the shapes and colors around it.

2) Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?

In my cut out I found negative space by cutting out the main parts of the bird, so the shadow can be easily revealed.​ In my stool drawing I made sure the negative space was found by using my black pencil to cover the unwanted areas and to draw more attention towards the center.

3) Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?

It helps drawing artist because it shows them what they need to focus more on and not get discouraged.

4) Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not

Seeing the negative space enhances drawings because it makes the drawing more easier to understand and easier to see.

Here's the drawing of my mirror reflections shadow drawing and my stool shadow drawing:
