    "Tranquility Garden"

    Straight Murals are more decorative than illusionary in nature.

    Unlike trompe l'oeil, which creates an illusion of 3-dimensionality out of a 2-dimensional surface, a straight mural may depict a scene for the sole reason of creating an atmosphere for a space.

    In the image above, real plants are placed in earth in front of the painted scene of the rocks and mountains to create a peaceful setting in a formerly dull, empty space.
