From the co-author of the best-selling The Handbook of Painted Decoration comes this advanced exploration of trompe l'oeil art and technique. Trompe L'Oeil Panels and Panoramas is a treasury of stunning designs ideal for interior designers and their clients, artists seeking inspiration, or for those simply wishing to copy the images themselves, as the included CD-ROM enables the reader to do.
Step-by-step sketches and carefully selected details of the finished pieces provide an effective demonstration tool, allowing artists both to refine their skills and acquire new techniques to enhance their repertoire. In compositions encompassing classical and fantasy landscape and architecture as well as flora, fauna and the human figure, Guegan demonstrates the successful execution of elegant wood, marble, drapery, and natural and figurative motifs, for decorative panels and panoramic murals.
With its thoughtful integration of fine French methods and traditions with contemporary style and innovation, Trompe L'Oeil Panels and Panoramas is the ideal instruction manual and an indispensable reference tool for anyone working in interior design and decoration.
