    The more I draw from both life and photos, I’ve become conscious of how the camera distorts images, especially in the matter of size relationships. In this week’s submission, done from ref photo, the upper part of body which bends toward camera seems too large.I know Leonardo’s old advice about measuring height of object and standing at least 3x distance away to draw and you’ve often advised standing back.It might be useful for you to suggest what to look for in correcting a photo image to be drawn when you feel instinctively something wrong.

    Hi David,

    Yes I understand exactly what you mean. I will talk to this in this week’s podcast.
