The following example illustrates the use of the Golden Mean Finder to lay out the elements of a mountain scene with a cabin, a tree, and some clouds.

It also shows how to find secondary Golden Mean points. That is, Golden Mean points that are within another Golden Mean measurement..GoldenMeanImageABCLetters

The animation below shows where we placed the tips of the outer limbs, (A) and (C) in order to locate Golden Mean points with the middle limb (B).


Note that the cloud, cabin, lake and tree are located in secondary Golden Mean points.
We are finding Golden Mean points where tips A and C are not placed at the edges of the canvas, but on previously located Golden Mean lines.
