Day 21: The Light of a shadow

As I sit in the living room this evening, I’m noticing the strong shadow of the chair that floor lamp is casting. It reminds me of the piano stool negative space exercise.

Gather Materials:

  • an artist’s journal, unlined notebook, or piece of paper
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • eraser
  • blending stump
  • an interesting shadow

Today’s Exercise

  • think about the negative space exercise you did of the stool
  • draw the light 
  • when you’re done shade in the shadow

Reflections on the Exercise

  • wow I find negative space hard to draw
  • it makes so much more sense to my brain when I start to shade in the shadow
  • I’m noticing the negative space around things so much more in my day
