STUDY: Object / Ground

GOAL: An object is any shape that stands out from the background and registers to the eye as "something."  Ground is the space around objects.  This can be referred to as positive and negative space.

If you are having trouble drawing an object so that it looks right, you can switch to drawing the background shape instead.  Looking at the shapes between parts of the object can give you a fresh perspective, and really help your drawing skills!
