    Geometry in art and composition

    Hey guys, I've been wondering a lot lately about geometry's play in composition, specifically those of the renaissance. I've heard that they used a great deal of geometry in the placement of objects, and i can see the simple stuff, but i miss a lot of the underlying structure. Also, I've seen a lot of posts talk about how they wish there was a larger discussion on composition on conceptart, so perhaps this could be it? Thanks guys for your input and posts.

    SweetPea,

    You might try the CA Search function to search "sacred geometry." I think there was a pretty extended discussion within the last 6 months to a year!

    There's a good bit on Golden ratios etc at the end of Speeds drawing book.
    It's free and legal so have a look.

    Everyones favourite landscape guy Stape, seems to be starting a section on it in his blog.

    There's a huge thread on this kinda thing started by (I think) Chris Bennett or Kev F., the search function hates me so I'll leave you to dig for it.
