Negative Spaces

This week in the classroom we talked about negative spaces.  Negative space the area not occupied by your subject.  You try to only see the shape made by where your subject isn’t.  Dede (@inkiwell) aptly described it as drawing the air around you subject.  This is not to be confused with a silhouette. A silhouette is the outer perimeter of your subject drawn as a shape.  If you cut the silhouette out, you will be left with the negative space.  This is a handy tool to help understand better some part of your subject that might be confusing to the eye.  For instance, if you are having difficulty with the perspective of the rails of a bar stool, focusing on the negative space will trick your eye into seeing what’s going on.

The Artistic Biker is me, Jonathan "Blade" Manning.
A treasure troll of a man, with hobbit feet and a sharp pointy head. You may see me traveling up and down the highways of Oklahoma looking for the next place to sketch, paint, sing, dance, write, photograph or simply meditate. I have begun a journey that once set upon, there is no turning back. You can share in my blunt force journey through the art world on my weekly U-stream broadcast
