Artists From Melbourne
An artist is a person engaged in an activity related to creating art, practicing the arts, or demonstrating an art. The common usage in both everyday speech and academic discourse refers to a practitioner in the visual arts only. However, the term is also often used in the entertainment business, especially in a business context, for musicians and other performers (although less often for actors). "Artiste" (the French for artist) is a variant used in English in this context, but this use has become rare. Use of the term "artist" to describe writers is valid, but less common, and mostly restricted to contexts like that used in criticism. Dictionary definitions The ''Oxford English Dictionary'' defines the older broad meanings of the term "artist": * A learned person or Master of Arts * One who pursues a practical science, traditionally medicine, astrology, alchemy, chemistry * A follower of a pursuit in which skill comes by study or practice * A follower of a manual art, such as ...

Sfumato
Sfumato (, ) is one of the canonical painting modes of the Renaissance, and is a painting technique for softening the transition between colours, mimicking an area beyond what the human eye is focusing on, or the out-of-focus plane. Leonardo da Vinci was the most prominent practitioner of sfumato, based on his research in optics and human vision, and his experimentation with the camera obscura. He introduced it and implemented it in many of his works, including the ''Virgin of the Rocks'' and in his famous painting of the ''Mona Lisa''. He described sfumato as "without lines or borders, in the manner of smoke or beyond the focus plane". According to the theory of the art historian Marcia B. Hall, which has gained considerable acceptance, ''sfumato'' is one of four modes of painting colours available to Italian High Renaissance painters, along with cangiante, chiaroscuro, and unione. Etymology The word ''sfumato'' comes from the Italian language and is derived from ''fumo'' ("smo ...
