Tea Time of the Monarch

Here's my new project trying the trompe l'oeil technique. For all the amateurs (like me) out there, trompe l'ooeil is a french term for 'deceive the eye'.  It is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects appear in three dimensions (source: Wikipedia). This is the technique that most artists use for murals or frescoes to make their art appear life-like.

30" x 30" Medium: Acrylic on Canvas

I don't know if this will be the style of all my succeeding works, but I'm pretty much leaning towards Realism (is this an actual art term?). I think I need a crash course on Basic Art 101. :P

Total duration of art project: 4 weeks
