Abstract Art -Pen & Marker drawing - by Hannah Goodwin

I thought I’d share an older drawing with you today. I drew this one a few years back – around 2012. This drawing is unusual for me in that I left heaps of white space. Somehow I managed to just add a few details and then put the pens away – whereas normally I’d try and fill in every last space. I was going to say that I’ll try do more of this in the future, but, well… I probably wont. At least I can work on being a little more intentional with my use of empty space.

  1. This is great! I often leave my backgrounds as just the raw paper but, apparently like you, I also fill my drawings up. I too am trying to embrace negative space. This is a good example of how successful that can be.
