Colors used in this painting include blue, green, red, yellow, and gray. Not many geometric shapes are used in this painting. The can is a rectangle. Organic shapes are used to creat the sardines inside. Lines are used in between the sardines to show the separation. The shadow helps create form and it makes the can of sardines look 3D. This painting does a good job of balancing positive and negative space. This painting makes me feel relaxed because of its use of blue and orange. I would not buy this painting because I don't like sardines and it would be very random because it wouldn't go with a theme in my house (unless my theme was sardines).

It is interesting to see that the color blue is used to make a shadow, which creates the illusion of light. Red and Yellow is used on the edges of the sardines to show the reflection of the light.
