Creative Drawing: Negative Space

Error: The video ( couldn't be embedded.

This is the third art tutorial in my series on Creative Drawing and this one concentrates on the importance of negative space. Using an unusual teak chair, I demonstrate how to sketch the chair before scribbling in the negative space with a biro.
Once complete it’s amazing how your brain will still ‘see’ the chair yet there is simply no detail on it whatsoever. It is very important to recognise the value of negative space in your drawings. Giving value to negative space in your art work will enhance your drawings and paintings.
This art tutorial is aimed at secondary school students, GCSE art students and those wishing to develop their drawing skills further.
