Trompe L'Oeil (or Trompe Loy)

I love taking photos of Trompe L'Oeil, this one is near Devizes in Wiltshire.
Chester Amphitheatre.
This one is in Swanage.

Wondered what Trompe L'Oeil was Liz until I looked it up!! Ah, that's what it is, an illusion. When we were visiting Milan Cathedral 2 weeks ago, the guide pointed to a painted ceiling which looked like it had been carved. Very interesting, I shall be on the lookout now for others.

Yes, Very interesting isn't it Irene. It's similar to Escher's work,which I really like.
Did you take a photo of the ceiling?

Irene said...

Yes I did. I'll email it to you.
