Fresco Reproduction by Fairlyte Interiors
"For such a large commission we chose Colourman paints because we are very familiar with their properties and exceptional workability."
 
David Cutmore and I (Melissa White) were commissioned to produce an artwork to fill a two storey wall (h:5.5m x w:8.5m) in a private house in Notting Hill. We proposed reproducing the famous Roman garden fresco at the Villa of Livia. This fresco originally covered four walls of a vaulted room but is now situated at the Palazzo Massimo in Rome.

The artwork consists of 24 large plastered panels approximately 130cm x 2 each mounted on aluminium sub-panels to create a single image.
Roman Garden Fresco Reproduction

David Cutmore and I (Melissa White) were commissioned to produce an artwork to fill a two storey wall (h:5.5m x w:8.5m) in a private house in Nottinghill. We proposed reproducing the famous Roman garden fresco at the Villa of Livia. This fresco originally covered four walls of a vaulted room but is now situated at the Palazzo Massimo in Rome.

As the client's wall was twice the height of the original we layered the garden scene from one wall behind and slightly above that of another and extended the sky in Photoshop to add height.

Why we chose Colourman Paints
"Normally on this type of work we use natural pigments mixed with size (rabbit skin glue nowadays). However for such a large commission we chose Colourman paints because we are very familiar with their properties and exceptional workability. As they are not full of strong synthetic binders they are perfect for mixing and distressing and replicate the matt quality of tempera.

Despite the colour range being quite small (40 colours) we have always found the right colours for our historic projects. I am always excited at the distressing stage of a project; we gently sand and wash back areas of paintwork which is a joy with these paints as they blend with and reveal layers beneath. We then finish with beeswax which magically enlivens the colours and creates rich and tantalising patination. This, I think, is where Colourman paint stands out as an artist's medium not just a household paint." Melissa White from Fairlyte Interiors
