Sight-size is a method in which the artist makes a drawing or painting at the same hight of the object painted or drawn by placing your canvas or paper either to the left or right of the object.

From a determined point of view, this allows the artist to see his subject and drawing side by side with both appearing the same size. In this manner the artist is able to make very objective comparisons of shape and proportions. The students, beginners or advanced, will have the possibility to compare immediately and objectively all the proportions of the object or model drawn or painted.

Why is using sight-size so effective?
