Roman Fresco

Here is a photo of a project that I am currently one day into. It will be the recreation of an aged Roman fresco - complete with some subtle cracks and pits on the surface.

It is being painted in a large bathroom on the wall above the bath - as usual I start of fairly monotone before gradually adding the colour. The look of the fresco has a very fluid feel as it would have originally been painted very quickly (before the plaster had gone off).
