We've been working on studying negative space.
Negative space is the empty space around the subject.
One of the paintings that we've been studying from John Singleton Copley is a great example of negative space.
Scratch Art paper is perfect for this study. The black of the top layer of paper allows for the artist to focus on the shade and texture of the object. It is in startling contrast to the lightness of the paper underneath.
