Back in August of this year i flew out to Sweden , Palm Fine Arts , to learn some trompe L'oeil with the wonderfully talented Mats Carlson , it was an amazing week , here's some pics of my door , taken from my mobile phone , not the best , infact i can't stand back far enough to get the whole door in as the quallity of the pic is really bad , anyway here's some close ups :)

This door was painted on Mylar plastic film , which is great for transporting purposes.
Last pic of me and the door. lots to do still , infact i did'nt get it finished in Sweden , I've only just had time recently to finish it at home !!

Nice work Jeremy!

So are you meaning that the Trompe L' oeil is actually a painted simulation of the decorative carving? That's awesome!
Thanks CA:)
Yes everthing is painted moldings ornaments and of course the grain , I've been graining for many years, but this is new to me, as in the trompes ,i have much admired the technique for some time , i still have much to learn about Trompe L'oeil , i find it absolutely facinating .

Many times when taking a class, I also had to finish my Panels at Home as I always seem to run out of time... I do not think most pdople realize just how long it takes to Draw... and Paint / Shade... Trompe L Oeil Mouldings !
But the results sure make a Panel look Awesome to me.
Another Great Panel Jeremy!

I am finally over the hump on a Large Graining Project that Needs to be Complete by Thanksgiving.... At the same time on the home stretch of building a Studio,and samples for 3 other projects that will begin after Thanksgiving. Man I'm Tired !

Matts is a Great Artist.... Taught by Yannick and complimented by him also....

Hoping to post some Great Stuff Very Soon....

Hi Michael, thanks for the nice comments , yes your quite right when saying that it takes time to do elaborate work like this and also for me the trompes is new so the learning curxe is a big one , i love these techniques and will be using them for many future graining and marbling panels, the trompes add so much to a piece of work .

Yes Mats is an excellent and very gifted decorative painter , i think he has made quite a name for himself in the teaching ranks as more and more people want to learn from him .

Really looking forward to seeing some of your recent projects , you have already displayed on here some very fine work indeed .

I've tried taking some more pics but the quality is not great , really need to buy a good camera .

Thanks....!
I also am not happy with most of my photos,as they lack the Depth that they actually have... I hope to have a friend of mine take some good pictures of this project, as it is to me one of the better Graining Jobs I have done.

You mean thats not a wood door?

Looks like a heavy wood door with all kinda crazy ornate trim nailed to it.

But thats all mylar plastic?

How long did that take you to do?

Looks really incredible to me as well; certainly very beautiful. It must have taken many hours of painstaking detailed work to achieve. How much would something like that cost?
I wouldn't be surprised if it costs more than a real door with those same details!
