Art and Positive Thinking

Welcome to my Renee Loves Art blog!

My focus is exploring, creating and reflecting upon the positives of life and connecting them to my art whether it be photography, pen and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, mixed media, digital media or any other possible media I dive into!

I hope you join me on my art adventure!

Positively Proportional, Face 5

My goal is to draw faces in better proportion.  I found another YouTube video using the Golden Ratio of  1.62, used by the Ancient Greeks to build the Parthenon, and Leonardo da Vinci to draw his Vitruvian Man. Hey, if it's good enough for them,why not me?  This technique is more mathematical, but I think it may be easier than yesterday's lesson.

Here is Kate, but altered by using a photo editing program.

Kate Embossed

I think she looks much younger in these versions!  I hope that you also find Kate to be positively proportional!

  1. It's funny the things you can do with the computer. But I like the original one the best!

  2. Thanks, Denthe. I prefer hand-drawn things myself!
