Trompe L'Oeil Summary

Trompe L'Oeil: Sky and Sea by Martin Benad

In this idea-filled, colorful guide, Ursula E. and Martin Benad provide a hands-on and easy-to-follow introduction to the art of painting clouds, waves, and seascapes. With a profusion of examples, patterns, suggestions, and professional tips, they address the essentials of working in large or small formats, on walls and ceilings, including advice on:.
  • Sky and ocean in perspective.
  • Special light situations, including evening and night skies.
  • Cloud formations.
  • Step-by-step surf.
  • Transparency and reflection of water.
  • Underwater worlds.
  • Still lifes, including trees, flowers, birds, and shells.

Key subjects covered include how to paint on walls and ceilings; motifs from different regions of the world (e.g. dream beaches in the Caribbean, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Thailand, Brittany, etc.); different weather and atmosphere conditions; times of day (morning, noon, dusk, evening); and accessories for the foreground (e.g. birds). An ideal reference for architects, interior designers, trompe l'oeil painters and their clients alike. Ursula E. Benad and her husband, Martin Benad, run the Color Concept studio for creative use of color and wall decoration in Munich. They are the authors, most recently, of Trompe L'Oeil Today.
