7 What is Proportion? Simply… More Specifically… Proportion means that you make the parts fit well with each other.More Specifically…Proportion in art is the relationship between two or more elements.When we talk about proportion in art works we are using comparing the size of one object in the artwork to the size of another related object in the artwork. You can also compare:height, width and depth of the objectssize of one area to the size of another areaamount of space between two or more elementsProportion is usually not even noticed until something is out of proportion. For example, if a person has a head larger than their entire body, then we would say that they were out of proportion.Good ProportionOut of Proportion
