The human body is pretty simple in terms of extremities…two arms, two legs, a head, etc. Knowing the principle of gamut, we can begin to incorporate it into our model’s pose. Many painters use this technique of having an arm or leg land on a major diagonal, reciprocal, then repeat them throughout the canvas. You can do the same in your drawings, sculptures, or photos…you must do it. Rhythm is a very important part of design and brings much pleasure to the viewing of your work.
