Here is another homage to an exceptional photographer of beautiful women. Again the purpose of copying the picture was to hone my semi realist painting skills. It is strictly a not for profit exercise. The original photograph is by Jacques Dequeker of model Emanuela de Paula and the image was sourced from the net. The painted copy is an approximation only and was a joy to paint in acrylics. 195mm x 245mm. You can't beat a good source image for painting practice!

Prevalent in the major works of Leonardo Da Vinci and underlying many of his design compositions, is the phi relationship (also known as the Golden Ratio or the Golden Mean), a ratio of approximately 1:1.618, found in nature and creation, and inherent in the Fibonacci sequence. The Golden Rectangle, the Golden Triangle, and the Golden Pyramid, all based on the Golden Ratio are all appear prominent in the work of Leonardo Da Vinci. He referred to the Golden Ratio as the "divine proportion".
