I took this photo from Arleta Pech. She is a nice artist... and this is a very interesting way for drawing in combination with divider of course!
Auguri a tutti!!!
"HOW to make a STUDIO GRID
I used a OLD thin oil painting stretcher bars about 30 x 40 (I paint big). If you want a small one to sit on a table do a smaller size like 16 x 20.
I used a tiny drill bit to drill holes around the stretcher bars sides spaced 1" apart. Painted the wood black. Then used KITE string and a Needle to weave though the holes. I pulled the string at tight as I could so it would not sag.
Since my grid is so large I used two OLD light tripods and tied it to them on each side. So I may raise or lower it to any height.
TIP if all the squares make you crazy or confused, drape back paper over the squares that do not relate to the size of your painting that way you are looking through a window at the sill life.
At the recent Van Gogh show here in Denver, they had a studio grid the old masters used....I was so tickled to see it and to know that we all need help in drawing if you want good realism."
