Rounded forms in still life
A thought occurred to me as I was painting the other day that rounded forms in a still life create the greatest opportunity for the illusion of depth on a 2D surface. The photos were taken in various museums, I apologize for not having names for the first two paintings but the last was painted by Chardin.
In this detail of a floral the roses are very important in establishing the illusion of 3 dimensions.
