Negative Space Drawings - Raz Reed

1. What is negative space?

Negative space is the space surrounding an object.

2. Explain how you found negative space in A. your cut-out?, B. your still life drawing?

When drawing the still life, I started by shading in a large portion of my paper. I "drew" it by erasing parts to resemble the objects I was drawing. When making my cut-out, I cut out the shape of the drawing I was given, and traced that onto both papers so I could know where to trim and paste.

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

It helps by giving the artist an accurate outline of what he/she is drawing.

4. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings? Why or why not?

It helps by providing a true shape of what you're drawing. In this way, negative space drawings may be better than regular in some situations.
