C3 Positive/Negative Space

cat-n-mouseThis exercise in Positive/Negative Space deals with the integration of two individual figures and the creation of a larger idea as a result.

Using very simple silhouettes and positive/negative space, create a fusion between an animal and its ___________ (fill in the blank as to what the other half of the pairing is: Food? Prey? Habitat? Offspring? Friend?). One silhouette must be a positive shape and the other a negative shape.

When you’re done, post to the Exercise Blog and share: Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram.
