Drawn Negative Space

This time we’re drawing in the negative space itself. It might not seem like there’s a difference between the two ways, but give it a try and you’ll find there is.


Instruction: Again, grab a simple object to display and draw. This can be the same as the previous exercise or something new. This time we’re specificically wanting to draw in the negative space – however we’re still not drawing the c-u-p itself, just the space around it. Don’t be afraid to use your eraser if you need to fix up mistakes.

Materials: 2B/4B Pencil or charcoal

Timer: 10 mins x 2 times
