Negative Shape Drawing

Leave a comment

A little known technique by beginners but widely used by experts is negative shape drawing. Since the positive shape (the figure) and the negative shape (the background) share and edge, you can draw either one. If the positive shape is giving you trouble, switch! Draw the negative shape instead. . . it’s a lot easier.
