True 5:4 Photography Proportion - 4x5 Size

The 5:4 aspect ratio is common to both art and portrait photography, as it creates a visually pleasing format for the human figure and face. The balanced compositional format can help to create a sense of symmetry and harmony in your artwork. The 5:4 ratio has a familiar "feel", as it was commonly used in early computer monitors. Additionally, you might consider trying some relatively unknown sizes in this same proportion that we call Lost Sizes As an artist, you get the best of both worlds, because you still get to use the same aesthetically appealing 5:4 format and use rare or novel sizes that help make your art stand-out.

  • 100% Belgian Linen 6.1 oz.; Primed Weight 14.0 oz. per square yard
  • Medium Heavy Weight, Fine Weave, Portrait Smooth Texture

Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) Primer Pigment

This primer contains premium-grade Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) white pigment, renowned for its exceptional performance in acrylic priming. Its standout feature is its enduring whiteness, coupled with remarkable flexibility that persists over time. In contrast to other pigments such as zinc dioxide, Titanium Dioxide maintains its resilience, preventing brittleness as it ages. This quality ensures that artworks retain their integrity and will stand the test of time.

Artfix Pau™ Portrait Smooth Belgian Linen offers a luxurious surface, ideal for highly detailed work. Preferred by portrait artists because it is so smooth for linen. Due to the nature of how flax plants are turned into linen textiles, there may be variations in yarn thickness thereby creating fabric that is individual in nature and has character. There can be infrequent naturally occurring nubs in the linen which may yield small slight bumps where the linen is a little thicker than the rest of the strand. This is normal and part of what gives linen its character.


Our Hardcore Pro Pro Canvas Panels are the flattest on the market. They are made using MDF (medium density fiberboard) which is the highest quality engineered wood board on the market. Moisture in the board can cause undesirable results to the panel and your artwork, which is why we size the board with four layers on the front before the canvas is mounted, thereby defending against moisture getting into the board and underneath your artwork.

Canvas Panels should be as flat as possible, otherwise, they don't display well in a frame, and can create spaces between the artwork and the frame. A bowed panel is also a sign of having been impacted by the effect of moisture. Canvas can shrink, even after it is mounted on the board. For this reason, Masterpiece® developed a unique proprietary process that stress-relieves each panel, thereby virtually eliminating the bow that is commonly found in competing panel products. Hardcore Pro Canvas Panels provide a stable foundation for your art.

Poetic beauty is a matter of both rhythm and harmony. ♦ Aristotle

Aristotle, the ancient Greek philosopher, had a profound influence on numerous fields, from ethics and politics to art and literature. His insights into poetry and drama shaped the way we perceive art even today. Understanding the dual nature of poetic beauty as he described it Ð rhythm and harmony Ð can be seen as a metaphor for art as a whole. Just as a poem requires the right balance of meter and meaning, so does a painting require the right balance of composition and color.

It's a gentle reminder that, like a poem, every brushstroke, every shade, every texture should come together in a harmonious dance. While rhythm in visual art may not be about beats or sounds, it's about the flow, the patterns, the repetition that guides our eyes through a piece. It's about balance and proportion. And harmony? It's how different elements of a work resonate with each other, creating a unified whole. As we approach our canvas, let's remember Aristotle's wisdom and strive to achieve that perfect blend of rhythm and harmony in our creations, giving our audience not just something to see, but something to feel.

Creativity is the reason you have landed on this page. Enjoy our own portrait rendition of Aristotle and the spoken words and meaning we provide. Now..go paint!
