Spirals and the Golden Mean

3 December 2019

My background interest in geometry and my observation of natural objects to draw and paint has recently come together. I have developed an interest in trying to draw and paint nature's spirals using geometric constructions. Among my collection of 'objects' are a Nautilus shell and some Ammonites which have been tempting me for some time.

I have finally started to draw them using my Phi dividers and callipers. These allow me to measure the Golden Ratio proportions.
