    • Sfumato
      refers to the subtle use of tone used to obscure sharp edges and to create a synergy between lights and shadows in painting.
      Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is probably the best known example of sfumato.
    • Chiaroscuro
      literally, “light-dark” a technique used to create dramatic contrasts. The focus of the painting is illuminated, as if in spotlight, while the surrounding area is dark and somber
      Rembrandt was the master of chiaroscuro as seen in “St. Peter in Prison”.
