- work and play
- and especially, art.
I always knew about positioning parts of a drawing/painting using thirds, but recently learned how light and dark in those general proportions creates a most eye-pleasing design. (See this blog entry.)
So, one-third dark to two-thirds light . . .
or vice-versa one-third light to two-thirds dark, either way.
Naturally this is not an absolute! Much great art throughout all history does not follow this guideline. This is just an insight to occasionally ponder as you choose which tangle on your palette of patterns you will recreate with your pen.
And as always . . . Enjoy!
