Negative Space

1. ​What is negative space? 

Negative space is the area around the object you are drawing.

2. I found negative space in both my drawings and my cutouts by drawing the object first, and then shading around it.

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

It helps an artist to see in negative space because he is able to determine the difference between light and dark. 

4. Does negative space enhance your drawings?

Yes because it helps make the object in the drawing more distinct and visible by making it contrast with the negative space around it.
