Draw Tip Tuesday – Perspective drawing with negative spaces

Posted by Koosje Koene in ArtJournal, Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on January 23, 2018

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

Remember how last week we drew a still life? We’re doing it again, taking a different approach: drawing the negative spaces.
Negative space is the space that surrounds an object in an image. Just as important as that object itself, negative space helps to define the boundaries of positive space.
In negative space drawing, instead of observing the positive shape of an object, you draw the shape of the space around the object.

Hi I'm Koosje. I'm an illustrator and art teacher in Amsterdam, where I was born and raised. I went to school to study graphic design, then worked for ten years as an award-winning professional photographer. But eventually my love of drawing and painting took over and I became an illustrator. My illustrations have been published in many Dutch magazines and in 2011, I began blogging and started developing and teaching online art classes. In 2014 I founded Sketchbook Skool, which is a flourishing community of artists from around the world of all skill levels.
