Trompe L'Oeil or 'trick of the eye' is an intriguing art form that through masterful skill, fools the eye into thinking that what has been painted is, in fact, real. Through easy-to-follow projects, this book reveals the secrets to achieving this impressive effect. There is a comprehensive introductory section that covers the history of the technique, as well as an outline of the materials needed for the projects.Simple basic exercises are followed by eight more elaborate projects to develop the essential technical skills. Each project is photographed step-by-step, through which you'll learn and put into practice some of the tricks that artists skillfully and playfully use to manipulate spatial perception and mimic reality. There is also a gallery section showcasing the work of Leonor Rieti, as well as the work of some students who have tried these projects at home. This book offers essential information and projects for anyone who is intrigued by optical illusions, hyperrealism and the role they play in art.

Leonor Rieti is an expert in trompe l'oeil and works with her father, Fabio Rieti, a famous painter who specialises in wall murals. Leonor has her own workshop where she teaches the art of trompe l'oeil and decorative painting.
