Negative space: The space around an object in an image. It is also the unoccupied by the shape formed by any object. The object is usually white and the negative space would be black. In my negative space drawing I found negative space by drawing all the shapes and erasing the lines in which the intersect, which didn't really turn out that well. In the cut out I found the different layers of the tree and cut of all the pieces of the tree and then glued them on opposite sides. Negative space helps an artist start of their drawing more easily and see things more clearly. Yes, because you are seeing one drawing from two different point of view.
