Trompe L’oeil

During the programme this week Frances was tasked with creating a special kind of outdoor mural called a Trompe L’oeil. A Trompe L’oeil is a landscape painting (either painted directly onto a garden wall or hung on one) which tricks the eye into believing the image is real and you are actually looking a stunning view of the countryside instead of a blank wall!

Trompe L’oeil artist, Anna Starling, kindly provided Frances with some top tips and tricks of the trade. Anna is the creative force behind “Mural Design”. For more information about Anna and her work please visit http://www.muraldesign.co.uk/

We saw several other fine examples of this imaginative form of Art during the show including designs by Michaela Kelly (http://www.art-by-kelly.co/) and Gordon Collett (http://www.muralartist.co.uk/)
