Deceiving the eye to believe something is real is such a difficult technique to master and all about creating depth in the painting through shadowing and light. This tromp l'oeil style painting shows how simple objects can be made to look beautiful. The delicate coloured ribbon adds a feminine quality to the painting and the exaggerated soft lines used when painting the keys helps bind the two together. The shadows formed by the composition are very prominent and use lots of blue, red and brown tones to help create the depth needed to bring this painting to life.
