German Trompe l'Oeil

 I came across these in an old folder and dusted them off because I thought they were beautiful and worth sharing. 
 The image above is remarkable: Rendering the look of metallic surfaces in oil on canvas is tricky enough, 
but this artist pulled off a believable effect in fresco!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

I posted more in a Flickr set here.


  1. I thought you might like those, Lynne ;)

  2. How do you get inside my head? These are so , so fabulous! Really a nice treat after a loooong day.

  3. Amazing!!! Gorgeous, where do you find this stuff? I certainly don't 'come across' this kind of material in MY folders! :-)

  4. What a great site. I'm so glad I wondered into it.
