PERFECT HARMONY OF SPACE

 

LAW OF THE GOLDEN SECTION OR GOLDEN MEAN

A classic mathematical formula for distributing weight in a painting. The ancient architect Fibonacci established the Perfect Harmony of Space

'For a space to be divided into equal parts to be agreeable and aesthetic, between the smallest and largest parts there must be the same relationship as between this larger part and the whole space'

In easy terms! It is about being able to section your painting into thirds and being able to section a 'L' through the painting.

The main two thirds has the main content and the 'L' has complimentary form and mark making
