Here are examples of Decorative Painting carried out in Ireland, UK, Europe and USA since I took up brushes in 1989, when the revival in this trade/art came about due to renewed interest in the old ‘handmade’ or ‘craft’ approach.
Murals & Trompe L'Oeil
From painted Marble and Wood known to ancient Egyptians and Greeks to Murals perfected by the Pompeian’s and Renaissance Italians.
These finishes have their fashions but are constantly developing to suit the time. Colourwashes with their abstract appeal, when applied boldly for an Irish pub or with subtlety to give a soft chic feel to a domestic interior or multiple distressed finishes which rely on visually textural qualities as much as colour for their interest and impart a sharp sophisticated effect for an office boardroom or reception feature wall.
Ultimately it allows the Architect/Designer/Client control and unique hands on approach over the look of the final finish.
