Negative space is the area around the image that is the focus of the picture.

In order to find the negative space in my picture, I aligned all of the pieces on one side, and flipped over every other one from the outside, so that the cut out was a mirror image of the side opposite it.

Seeing an image in negative space is an important skill for an artist to have, as it can help to clearly visualize the overall form of the subject matter.

Seeing the negative space present in a drawing or any other type of visual art enhances the viewing experience, as it brings more contrast to the attention of the viewer.
