09-16 A Crease in the Fabric I

Such a simple composition, but the crease effect is amazingly convincing because it's not trying to achieve too much. Perspective, contrast and subtle shading make it work. The circle was added later and I tried a lot of colours and patterns before making it blend in with the linen. It has about 20 layers of paint so it's smoother in texture than the rest of the surface. Its almost-invisibility paradoxically grabs the attention and draws you deep into the image.
