Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 author invites readers to do. (A CD-ROM containing the designs is included for easy transfer and resizing of the designs.) Step-by-step sketches and carefully selected details of the finished pieces provide an effective demonstration tool, allowing artists to both 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. Through the thoughtful integration of fine French methods and traditions with contemporary style and innovation, Trompe L'Oeil Panels and Panoramas is an ideal instruction manual and a useful reference tool for anyone working in interior design and decoration. CD-ROM includes easy-to-use screen-resolution TIFF files of every trompe-l'oeil painting.
