 Golden Ratio

over winter I worked my long thin canvases. I finished one, but not the other. I’m going back to it now, after finding the ice-cream cobble on Llandudno beach. 

I did some sketches thinking about proportion  And then taped suitably sized papers into position. 

 You can play around with levels with the camera, but not go too mad – thought the blue background is not original.

cobble diameter 3/5th height of board at the golden ration 1:1.618

proportionally smaller cobbles at the next smaller ratios

and here we are with the colours etc. pushed in another direction.

Now I have to find the right paper for these large pebbles and add more smaller bits and pieces while still keeping the tension between the existing stuff.

So stuff happens  MER
