"Artist John Pascoe’s tiny London studio is complete with a hand-painted wraparound mural. The interior is a labour of love – opera director and set designer John was inspired by the beauty of Clissold Park to create a mural that wraps around the whole studio, detailing the sunlit monuments, ancient trees and lakes. He spent six hours every day for four months painting scenes on the walls, amassing to over seven million brush strokes. The nature-inspired wall mural has been the backdrop to many significant operatic projects, which is why the artist refers to the studio as his Back Room Opera Box." (Photograph by J Pascoe)

I painted this trompe l'oeil panel in my medici villa outside of Lucca. It was built at the opening of the nineteenth century when the Napoleonic style ruled with his sister Elisa Buonaparte as Princess of Lucca.
