Session #269, Work #265

Tonight Jamie had us working on angles and the ability to re-produce angles as accurate as you see them in nature. He even showed us his amazing invention, the “Bollenbach Angelamometer”.  It was basically two clear thin rulers attached to one another by a center point on one end allowing each clear ruler to rotate easily at any angle. The artist could then use this “Angelamometer” by holding it up in front of them, looking through the clear material of the ruler and matching the angle of the subject they see beyond the ruler by rotating it. Once the artist has matched the angle with the “Angelamometer” they could then compare that same angle with their paper. I hope to one day become a master “Angleamometer-er”.
