Negative Space

Sketch of a figure with a focus on the negative space by Sarah Sullivan

Negative Space

In the figure drawing class today we worked on making the figure pop by developing the negative space around the figure. For example, the bedding the model is sitting on got much more emphasis than the model herself.

This is a charcoal drawing on a 24 X 18 inch sheet of newsprint.
