Mississhippi's Madness

A place to share my creative pursuits

Drawing Class


Tonight was my second drawing class. We learned about negative spaces. Very interesting. You look at an object but look at the spaces and shapes around the object and draw those instead of the actual object. The white space in between those drawn shapes represents the original object. I started going cross-eyed after focussing on a picture of a motorbike and drawing the spaces inbetween the spokes of the wheel for half and hour or so. But it was fun and challenging. I think it appealed to my mathematical side.
