Unbelievable Trompe l’oeil Painting

Amazing. It takes you a while to realize that it is not actually a grandfather clock. This was done by my friend Sean from Scenic Artisans. He writes:

“This is from Cleveland Park. The story with this is that the client had a plastic clockface on that wall, but always envisioned a grandfather clock. Since it is a tiny landing, that was impossible. We got to talking about it and came up with the thought to paint a wooden clock casing around the plastic clock she had. Initially we talked about a very realistic and accurate trompe l’oeil version, I drew out a full scale version, did some faux wood samples to show her color, and this is what we decided on.”
