ShowMe of the Week: Understanding the Positive and the Negative Space

Different words can be defined in various ways depending on people’s mentality and approaches. For example the word positive is always associated with good and beneficial approaches of an event or an object, while the word negative has the opposite definition.
In a ShowMe video called “Positive and Negative Space” Nikkie Milner explains the idea of positive and negative space in arts. In arts the positive space is the actual object itself, while the negative space is the background of an object. One should have the ability to distinguish the main focus of an object and its outer space. This technique will make the process of distinguishing the positive and the negative spaces of any object much easier. It gives an opportunity to have a wide range of mind and to be more creative in the entertaining world of art!
