The architecture of classical Greece & Rome left an enduring legacy that was embraced and enhanced by the artisans of the Renaissance who admired the grace & proportion of the Classical style. The decorative styles of 18th & 19th century homes often drew on classical conventions.
Trompe l'oeil techniques can add architectural distinction to a plain interior by creating the illusion of carved pediments over doorways, stone blocking and even the recreation of crumbling frescoes from Pompeii. Classical detailing can be incorporated into a painted vista, such as a balustrade to frame the view, or a crumbling ruin in the distance.
I also paint what I describe as “fresco fragments”. These art pieces are painted onto shaped and carved panels and are designed to be hung frameless on your walls.
