Alberto Giacometti's work to illustrate the idea. Remember that organizational line drawing is similar to gesture in that it is a searching line. Starting with vertical and horizontal lines, the composition is organized and simplified by drawing lines that isolate and enclose the positive and negative areas. This allows the artist to compare and take measurement of the individual parts.
Towards the end of class, we focused our attention on emphasizing the negative areas of the still life. Remember that the positive areas are the objects themselves and the negative areas are the spaces around and within the objects.
