Round the Corner

”Still round the corner, there may wait, a new road or a secret gate.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

According to Wikipedia, Trompe-l’œil is an art technique that uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions.

I have posted this previously (see here the complete post in Squares Perspective) and I am posting it again as part of Becky’s PastSquares and for Dan’s Thursday Doors

A restaurant in Budapest.

On the Royal Mile in Edinburgh

In Toledo, Spain

    Those are really interesting, Teresa. They scenes do appear to be in 3D and are a little surreal. I love the color and there’s a little feeling of motion in the bottom one. I like the featured cafe scene the best. It looks like a nice place to relax. Thanks for sharing with Thursday Doors.

    1. Teresa says:

      Glad that you liked them. It is a wonderful feeling to see these kinds of artworks.

    Love the bright colours in the first two pix, very cheery on a day of grey skies which are threatening rain.

    1. Teresa says:

      Hoping for sunny days for you. Yes Maris, such vibrant colours aren’t they?

    I have always been fascinated by trompe-l’œil – in part because I adore street art of all sorts, in part because of the unusual perspectives offered. You collection is wonderful! My favourite is the alley with musicians playing, and the little dog listening aptly.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks for the visit and for liking my images, Ju-Lyn. I definitely like that mural in one of the alleyways.

  9. Amy says:

    Beautiful selections! Love the second one especially.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Amy. I like that one too…it’s like you’re going to an unknown dimension.

    So cool

    And artists who can do these Trompe-l’œil paintings are so talented

    1. Teresa says:

      That is so true 👍🏼
