My most recent painting below, 'No strings attached' is my first foray into Trompe L'oeil painting. I have really enjoyed this painting as it provided me with some technical challenges both setting up the reference material and also trying to portray shadow and depth of field convincingly, which to some extent I think I have achieved. I will definately be revisiting Trompe L'oeil in the future as this painting has given me inspiration for more paintings in this style. In some respects all of my paintings and photorealist paintings in general are kind of Trompe L'oeil paintings as they are paintings of an object (the photograph) made to look photographic and real on a two dimensional surface.
