Set painting for film productions and television

It looks like rusty metal, wood or stone, but it is simply color on whatever ground. As scenic artist I am experienced in techniques such as marbling and wood graining, but also in landscape and perspective painting, portraiture and trompe-l'-oeil. Trompe-l'-oeil means to deceive the eye and its amazing effect is suitable not only in scenic art.

Scenic painting for film and TV sometimes has to be very detailed due to camera close-ups, but emphasis lies mainly on a good distant effect.

As scenic artist I paint backdrops, murals and other paintings required on film sets and I am used to work to deadlines. Designer's small-scale ideas must be interpreted and developed into full-scale reproductions, perhaps even improving on the design during the process.
