ACCURACY METHOD

The method

G Bjorn Thorkelson developed a kit on a century old tradition of using a transparent medium to help sketching proportions accurately. The grid method is not new. You can buy the kit or just have a look and learn how also the masters and Italian, Dutch , in short, the Renaissance "botteghe" used to work

"We sometimes think of the ability to draw as something magical...a gift given to a blessed few...we call that gift, a “talent.” The fact is, in order to draw accurately, the gifted artist and the novice alike have to implement the same exact principles of comparisons and alignments."

"With time and practice these “magical” skills can become second nature and anyone can join the ranks of the “talented.”
