25 Days to Better Drawings – Day Twenty – Positive and Negative Space — 6 Comments

  1. I found this lesson helpful for seeing shape. I can see how this technique would also help with “drawing” the shapes with a paintbrush for underpainting. Thanks.

  2. I was skeptical, but this technique does help me. I think it works because my brain does not try to help understand the negative shapes as it does with the positive ones. Also nice reference for this exercise, i like the result, it’s artsy :).

  3. You have chosen a fab photo as the reference! This is a great way too for getting a drawing in the correct proportions! I saw both the vase & the heads has this any relation to what side of the brain we use ?

  4. When I was a small child, my grandmother would save all of the pictogram puzzles from her crossword puzzle books for me. It’s basically the same thing, only the squares are in order instead of all jumbled up!
