Day 2: Negative Space

Today's lesson is on the concept of negative space. Since I don't do breakfast, I attempted to handle my desk as I was drinking the morning coffee and browsing my favourite information and news sites.

The interesting thing about this lesson is that you're drawing what isn't there instead of what's there. This concept crops up in Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. The idea being that you're getting your mind off of naming the shapes, which tends to affect how you draw vs perceive, and instead focus on what you actually see.

It takes practice. :)
