Wednesday Word: Sfumato

Sfumato - noun.

Sfumato is an art term that describes a painting technique where the edges are blurred and blended, leaving a super soft transition. Sfumato translates to gradient in Italian. This is why Renaissance paintings often look otherworldly and glowing. The most famous example, of course, is Da Vinci's Mona Lisa :-)
