SKETCHING TECHNIQUES
Contours and Negative space
The contours of an object are the main outlines that separate it from
the surrounding space. One way to think about the contours of objects
is to look at the contrast between the positive and negative
space. Positive space is the space occupied by the object. Negative
space is the unoccupied space around it.
