The Art of Illusion

A Trompe L'oeil Painting Course

Unknown - 2000
Rate this:
From the hills of Tuscany to English country scenes, THE ART OF ILLUSION shows artists how to create stunning, three-dimensional murals on walls and furniture. The books starts by helping readers develop a workable design, draw it to scale, and transfer it to the painting surface using the principles of three-point perspective. Artists will then study techniques for surface preparation and color mixing before starting on the projects. Several classically inspired themes are included such as, a Tuscan view, a Tiepolo mural, Roman gods and creatures "en grisaille" and English country cattle murals. Artists will also find updated trompe l'oeil murals, featuring a whimsical changing room scene, a cozy-looking tabby cat, and a beach-side window view.
