• Observe the stool thinking of the negative shapes first.

• Draw equivalents on your paper starting with the largest negative shapes first using your vine charcoal.

• Remember to start your drawing thinking in terms of general to specific.

• Once the composition is set on your paper, use your compressed charcoal to darken the background –solidifying the largest negative shapes.

• Remember; only use negative shapes to define the shape contours of the positive plastic form.
