Life Drawing in negative space

This time, instead of drawing the model, we had to draw the negative space around her and the objects. My first thought was 'oh god no' but once i got into what i was doing and relaxed, i found this to be a lot better than when i draw the actual model. I didnt have to focus on details, just the shape of the spaces around her. I'm pleased with the way this turned out, and i can see the model in my drawing.

This second one, we did the same thing, but with a different pose. I found finding the shapes really easy, and enjoyed this different experience. I think i found a new strength in drawing which is totally different to the way i am used to.
