    Trompe l'oeil being made with ArtRage help (Final version on page 2)

    I set up rapidly with Artrage the fundamentals of the composition on a trompe-l'oeil requested by my brother in law to create a fake window behind a blind window frame to then proceed to paint it with acrylics adding some different details.
    I'm about to finish the pot by completing the flowers and the green all around to detach it, tonally anc chromatically, from the balcony behind.
    Upon request I also have to add a sunflower field somewhere to enlighted the view a little bit.
    Real acrylics painting aren't as easy and speedy as with Artrage for quite a number or reasons, among which my limited skills also due to scarce experience and poor discipline with color mixing and recording (which is a problem if You don't decide an appropriate and not too wide color paint tubes palette).
    Anyway I'm reasonably satisfied of what I worked out up to know, so I'm attaching the initial Artrage sketch (partly painted and partly a collage) and what came out as a real painted panel either outside, on my terrace, with natural light and inside, with artificial warm lighting.

    A lovely scene, Caesar, my preference would be the one with the warm light but which ever one it is a beautifully painted scene and if I might be so bold as to say perhaps some shadow to show some distance between the window ledge and the balcony wall,

    Caesar...
    Love all of these!
    Like to have the complete set of these...and put them in my windows to block the view of my neighbors! ..Seeing them starring back at me!
    Nicely Done!
    Take Care,
    Steve

    P.S.
    They really would greatly enhance the my view....
    Or!...I could move?... Now!...Where exactly is this place from where you conceived the views?
    Nice!!!!!

    Dear Pete, the first one is the virtual Artrage sketch, half painted, half a collage.
    The second and the third one are actually the (only) real acrylics painting about to be completed, seen either under external, natural light or with inner warm light, so as to check differences. Thank You!

    Dear ATPLus, the answer is just above in my reply to Pete. Not bad the view from my summer villa, isn't it. Much better than my military tent when I have to move to Gallia or Britannia . LOL Thank You and SLAINTE to You!

    Thank You, dear Jean. Actually there's a possibly too faint shadow under the bricks which lean out of the wall very little indeed. Maybe i should reinforce it a little if I understood what You observed. In case I didn't You may possibly sketch what You meant pls ?

    Dear Steve, the exact place is nowhere, but, in a way, almost everywhere all over in Italy, with plenty of lovely and even far better, breathtaking views I wish and hope we would most keep for posterity too. Maybe You may print this on a panel or a big canvas for You too when it's finished, although I think that, not suddenly to disrupt Your routine, I should start providing You with such a view which includes also your neighbors faces peeping from outside. LOL Thank You.

    Caesar,
    While I have sometime between searching the internet for the best rates on flights to 'Nowhere'...
    I have a request my friend!...Could you paint at least the 'pretence of smiles' on their faces as if they maybe pretending to enjoy our shared view?

    Take Care!
    I throughly enjoy your work,
    Steve
