Scenic art

Scenic art describes the painted backdrops, murals and other created elements of a set. Scenic artists work with set designers, and are responsible for translating their vision into reality. Scenic artists are highly trained and posses many skills including traditional fine arts skills of sketching, rendering, and painting.  They are well versed in techniques such as marbling, ragging, wood graining and texturing, and have a good understanding of art history, period styles, motifs and architecture. This collection demonstrated some of those skills and techniques.
