How da Vinci and Van Gogh cheated, and the tool that does it all
Would you believe Vincent Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, Johannes Vermeer and many other greats cheated? Yes! They used art tools to ease their process. Lenses and windows helped them draw more accurately and create masterpieces. Or so-called masterpieces.
They should be considered frauds — to have mechanical help is to erase the sanctity of art! Right?
No, no, no, no. It wasn’t cheating at all. Unless you consider art tools steroids for artists or consider the most respected artisans of all time crooks.
Now, introducing (drum roll, please) the ultimate “cheating” device: View Frame II, by Miira Artist Tools
“This is incredible! But it’s basically cheating.”
It’s surprising how many people say that about this modern view finding tool — “it does the work for you.”
Well, no. It measures a subject. It lets you compare and contrast. It allows experienced artists to work faster and the novice to build a strong foundation immediately. It literally teaches you to:
Understand and translate linear perspective
See and translate tilts and angles
See and register foreshortening
Scale and compose
Use the rule of thirds
View Frame II is a modification and an innovation of tools the greats used.
So whether you want to compose like da Vinci or just improve your artistic ability, View Frame II is the device to do it. It helps the artist in many ways.
Really, it’s not cheating.
