Trompe L'Oeil Panels and Panoramas: Decorative Images for Artists and Architects
This advanced exploration of trompe l'oeil art and technique provides a treasury of designs suitable for interior designers and their clients, artists seeking inspiration or for those simply wishing to copy the images themselves. A CD-ROM is included for easy transfer and re-sizing of the designs. Step-by-step sketches and details of the finished pieces provide a demonstration tool, allowing artists to refine their skills and acquire new techniques. 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. Using the integration of fine French methods and traditions with contemporary style and innovation, this book provides both an introduction manual and useful reference for anyone working in interior design and decoration.
