Negative Space drawing:

why do we use it?


Negative Space drawing is a technique  used to prevent your logical mind from assigning a symbol to the object you are trying to draw.Negative space drawing is drawing the space around the actuall object you want to draw. Instead of looking at the object you are trying to draw, you draw where the object is not , By drawing the negative space the positive space( Object you want drawn) will fall into place by itself.Negative space drawing is a right brain drawing exercise so it helps you develop your creative side (see Split brain Laterilisation page).BY drawing negative space we can train our eyes to see 3D object sin 2-d shapes.Download the worksheets below to have a go at the negative space drawing exercises.
