Trompe l’oeil, or literally “trick the eye”, describes a style of painting that sets out to deceive. It is the art style that creates the illusion of three-dimensions onto a flat surface.
In this Orange Tree project the artist takes you on a step-by-step journey throughout the planning and painting process complete with photos and diagrams. It is his wish to equip you with an understanding of the techniques and materials necessary to create your very own trompe l’oeil masterpiece.
