Negative space is the clear blank empty space around a picture.

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

I found negative space in my cut out by when I used different colour for template to background paper I saw the shape of the cut out. In my stool drawling I did scissors, I found by when I shaded white paper then erase the outline of the scissors. So when I saw the different colours I found negative space.

It helps an artist by it him see what he drawled only and it adds a balance to the picture.

Negative space is used to just focus what has been drawled.
