As part of a trompe l'oeil painting project I worked closely with another artist to produce these 4 pieces; the capital and base of a column, a stone carving of a head, and a painting of 2 cherubs inside a frame. Alongside this I studied the orders of architecture. This project involved accuracy within drawing the designs out, pouncing/ making pounces and painting with washes. I designed the image of the 2 cherubs within a frame myself on the computer, scaled it up, then painted it with a series of washes.
