Trompe-l'oeil is all about light and shadow

We have less than 2 weeks to go in our Moldings and Ornaments painted in Trompe-l'oeil course and I am very happy with the way my students have progressed these past few days!  It seems just like yesterday that I was explaining to them the importance of getting their filets or linings right.  Today they understand this new 'language' of trompe-l'oeil and are continuing to explore new techniques I'm showing them in class.
