Learn Not To Rely On Grid Lines

Grid lines are extremely helpful when it comes to portrait painting.


It is easy to use, but it took away my judgment on the measurement of the face, sometimes the whole picture got distorted because I was relying on grid lines too much. I think this is dangerous, especially for people who love art and the freedom to express their feelings through painting. It can take away your peacefulness in creating art by overly focusing on details in starting a painting.


My personal experience taught me that I become lost and do not know what has gone wrong when using grid lines unless it is a large painting.


Eventually, I decided to get rid of grid lines.
