Project details - Trompe L’oeil Door Panels

Trompe L’oeil Door Panels

Both of these doors are actually flat and have had trompe l’oeil panels hand painted on them.


(1) The first picture shows one of the doors I painted in Garth Antiques, Harrogate. For each of the doors I painted several trompe l’oeil panels before giving them a subtle ‘dragged’ paint effect.

(2) The second picture shows a faux wood pine door, again with trompe l’oeil panels. The home in which I painted this door had recently had a loft conversion and fire door fitted.All the rest of the doors in the hallway were made from real antique pine and had panels. The new, flat, white fire door naturally stuck out like a sore thumb so I faux painted it to look pine and then added the trompe l’oeil beading to make it blend in with all the others.
