Negative space is the space within, between, and around objects. In drawing and painting, negative spaces are actual shapes that share edges with the positive shape -- the object or objects you are drawing or painting -- thereby creating the outline of your subject.
In respect to this, how do you draw a negative?
The correct method for negative drawing is to observe the shapes formed around or in between object(s). Once you understand the shapes you begin shading the area around these shapes revealing the negative space. Drawing the outline first and then shading outside the outline is not negative drawing.
Similarly, is Negative Space black or white?
In this figure, the black represents the positive space and the empty white area represents the negative space. The concepts of positive and negative space are slightly more complex than simply the foreground and background of a picture.
What color is negative space?
What is the purpose of negative space?
Negative space, in art, is the space around and between the subject(s) of an image. Negative space may be most evident when the space around a subject, not the subject itself, forms an interesting or artistically relevant shape, and such space occasionally is used to artistic effect as the "real" subject of an image.
