October Squares: White Lines on Black

After a short hiatus from this challenge, I am back for another contribution to Becky’s October Square: Lines & Squares photo challenge.

Today in my art class, we worked on shadows and “negative spaces” in drawing. These are my best efforts, with my favorite being the square photo. I drew these on black construction paper with white chalk and a little contrasting with a black pastel pencil, mainly on the second one. This was a lesson in creating an image in lines and contrast. What is merely suggested the viewer creates, filling in the rest of the picture in her mind.
