This was a large exam project based on the mural style of Trompe l'oeil, (For those not in the know: meaning to fool the eye).
I made a "corner of a room" Using one side to represent reality and the other the illusion of reality. But which is which? haha
One side had a wooden skirting board, and window 'frame' the other side was totally painted on, I had included a small laminate flooring section but it went missing when I collected my work from the examiners... Sad

That's a really interesting project (in the way of dealing with the term). It's well executed. Until I read the description I was thinking "hmm.. the left side looks like there was more time spent on it XD

Zephyr: You're correct, the right hand side is completely painted. Was rushed but I got a B in the end  Smiley

Teddybearbones: It was a 12 hour exam so some of the painting was a bit rushed as I ran out of time!  Grin

What a dreadful oversight! Corrected now though.
Some of my family on my dad side is French, just a random bit of personal info for you... Although I am British, I do actually like my friends from across the channel...

J'aime le francais, mais je ne peux pas ecrire!
Damn my spelling abilities...c'est la vie

Thanks for the heads up!

you are very welcome! It was funny though you made the mistake on the word eye! But it's a strange thing called: e dans l'o. E in the O. Where are your Dad family from in France? Northern? I am a Northern french girl but I live in southern usa! And btw, you write french quite well!!! No mistake in your sentence!  Wink

My dads family is from Paris, my aunt emigrated to become a dancer at the Moulin Rouge (The dancers are not scarlet ladies anymore! Tongue) She used to be a bit of a sewing crafter herself, altering her costumes, wish I had her talent....

(FYI the costume is skin coloured... ignore my shadow btw, picture glass...)

As for my french, thanks, although when it comes to speaking I'm dreadful, I panic and then mumble some gibberish!

Trompe l'oeil studies:

Letters: Used an old WW1 letter that I found at a war memorabilia market




Used watercolours on watercolour paper.
