Negative and Positive Spaces:
Negative Space in art is the space around and between the subject. Negative Space is the background.
Positive Space in art refers to the main focus of a picture.
To understand the concept of a negative space we need to copy the outline of some objects
This exercise was not easy to do. Below is a screen shot of the tutors work, I am still trying to do it 😂. Sorry the photo is faint.
The next exercise would focus on the negative space, do some shading flip the drawing to see the result. I almost managed that but again I have shown you the tutors magical work.
The shaded and flipped over work
To honest I am finding these exercises quiet boring and tedious. I am looking forward to actually drawing a picture. I guess we all need to crawl before we can walk….lots of practice request. Progress not perfection.
