Trompe l`oeil means to trick the eye.To give the illusion of a three dimensional object. For example a painted window in a windowless room, adding depth and actually making the room appear bigger. Whether it be a whole wall or room painted to look like a courtyard, or a tiny hole in a wall with a mouse peeking out. it can be quite dramatic and believable!
There are so many reasons to have an outdoor mural. It is a fun way of tricking the eye or just extending the outside in or the inside out.
Ideas for outside areas:
Remember the area needs to be clean, free of dust and moisture in order to paint on it. Although the paint I use has a higher lightfast scale than house paint it will fade over time due to sunlight moisture and the general air quality.
