Negative space is the absence of something. It is drawing what is not there, instead of what is there. I found negative space in my cut out in the areas where I had cut out parts of my tree and put it on the opposite side of the paper to complete the picture. In my still life drawing - which I had to at home because I was out the day that we did it in class - I found the negative space by drawing the absence of what I was drawing. Using negative space helps to establish positive space. If an artist can show negative space, than they will be better at making positive space. I believe that seeing negative will enhance drawings, because it will make the contrast in the art stronger.
