   This is a classic Trompe L'oeil mural. Most of the time, when Trompe L'oeil technique is wanted, the artists go for a figurative composition surrounded by any kind of architectural features because thats what gives the artist the possibility to create depth using linear perspective. Today we can use the same techniques in other themes and get amazing results (fantasy, animation, movie etc.)

 

 

ITALIAN LANDSCAPE mural

  This mural came out so well considering that it is the first proper Trompe L'oeil I've ever done. I have encountered a few technical issues with this mural and it took me a bit longer than I expected but in the end the result was more than satisfying. The basic linear perspective was kinda straight forward but the stone effect and the way how light behaves when there's two sources of light made me think a bit longer. Example: the imaginative light coming from the mural and the real light coming from a window on the right side of the mural. This creates a specific light and shadow effect and it has to be done wright in order to get the imoresion of reality. Overall the painting came out very nice and everyone was happy.
