Using the Divine Proportion tool

The Divine Proportion tool lets you use guides based on a classical composition method of the same name. When planning your artwork you can use the guides to create a sense of proportion, which helps maintain interest as the eye of the viewer travels across a drawing or painting.

Proportion Tool

The Divine Proportion tool can help you establish focal areas. (Art-worthy Andrew Jones.)

The Divine Proportion palette lets you change the orientation, size, angle, color, and opacity of the Divine Proportion guide that appears on the canvas. Y>u can also adjust the number of levels to determine how many times a section divides within itself, creating a spiral. You can adjust these settings while you work, and you can save them as a preset. Y>u can also move the Divine Proportion guide to a new position.
