Lost and found edges

In the Acrylic Forum Art Show, Diane Johnson talks about lost & found edges. This is a new term to me. Could someone explain or demonstrate please.

Re: Lost and found edges

Lemart, a lost edge is where one edge/object disappears into another. For example, the shadowed side of an object might disappear into a dark background, and reappear where more light illuminates the object (found again).

Welcome to WC Acrylic Forum! I haven't read that posting by Diane Johnson on lost and found edges. Will have to look for it. Sounds interesting!!
JamieWG's interpretation of the subject is right on!!

Re: Lost and found edges

I think I understand. I believe I may have employed this in one of my pics, and will post it when I've worked out how to send attachments! In the meantime thanks for your prompt responses.

Re: Lost and found edges

What Jamie said is right on and I will add: the eye tends to rest on a found (sharp edge), while passing by a lost (diffuse) edge.
