negative space

A comment by Kristin has sent me into negative space... I decided to practice drawing that space a bit more, it is a fun challenge to set for myself.
here's my ironing board...
my industrial bernina...
my workhorse-oldie-but-goodie bernina...
the top of my studio bookcase...
my rubber tree plant..
my kitchen utensils...
Oh and then something prompted me to work some surface design on the cover of my red book. I whipped out my stamps and acrylic paint and went to town. Phew! That was fun...
Look how thick my book is getting and it's not even June yet...

Negative space drawing can be so much fun. It is amazing how much easier it can be to draw something when you focus on the space around it and not the object itself.

These are great Natalya! Brings a whole new light to the term "negativity."
