Sfumato is the most common means of using the color in order to blur the clear hard lines and ensure that there is a delivery of the clear and the smooth picture. Thus, in such kind of paintings, there won’t be any kind of art lines in the paintings. This leads to the creation of the blurry effect at the edges. It was such a painting which was developed by the Leonardo da Vinci. This technique led to the creation of the revolution in the art. The bright colors may get mild as a result of the mixture which may be there with the dark or the while pigment. This is the reason why the painting using Stumptown model has a completely subtle consistency all over the painting.
Any specific area which may be there in the art forms does not actually strike out in the very first glance (Bussi et al., 2007). This is because there isn’t any bright or eye catching spots in the painting. It had been stated by Leonardo that this technique has been aimed to blur the hard lines which are there in the paintings similar to that of the smoke in air. This technique of canonical art is also called the Leonardo’s smoke (Casati & Pignocchi, 2007). This has also become the discussion among the people in the most controversial and talked forms of art including the Mona Lisa Smile. It can be stated that there aren’t any hard line techniques which can describe Mona Lisa. The human mind may actually get confused if the painting is actually smiling or not. This is the most important secret behind her smile.
Another popular contemporary art form which is particularly very popular is the Sfumato. It gives the specification of the smooth transformation of the colors without leaving any kind of trace related to the hard lines. The difference is that the intensity of the colors used in the art form. While Stumato model focused on smoothing colors (Danto & Goehr, 1997). This pattern was used with the help of the dark pigment which helped in making the painting lose all the intense colors which are there in the same.
