B. Explain how you found negative space in-I found the negative space by looking for the blank spaces in the art. 1. your cut out?-In my cut out looked for the blank areas behind the trees., 2. in your stool drawing?-I looked at the solid things and knew that they were positive and the faded things in the background were negative.
C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space? -It helps the artist to see the thing that they are focusing on, not the things behind the positive area they re focusing on.
D. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not?-The negative spacing does enhance the art because it brings the eye straight to the thing that the artist wants the viewer to focus on.
