Golden Ratio

Examining the golden ratio as a compositional element.

The Golden Ratio
Using the math to make the art
I started thinking about the golden ratio. I had heard about this before; but, I had never given it much thought. Over the holidays, I decided to look it up and see what it was all about. If you're not familiar with it, here is a good place to start reading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio.

I've only done this one piece (in two color sets). I'll be interested in trying it out on other designs to see if it really does produce a more appealing composition. What do you think? Do you agree that the golden ratio helps a composition, similar to the rule of thirds?
