Big Rusty Blooms is back for yet another session, but this time working with an all new 3’x5′ vertical format sample! Learn how to integrate Modern Masters Metal Effects paints into a piece of fine art!
Join Ali for this 2 day workshop where you will learn to paint using loose brushwork and adventurous color while staying true to a representational portrait! Students will follow a step by step sample painting on the first day. Then on day two they will create their own piece from a personal photo.
We are very pleased to announce that Positive Space received both the winning award and the honorable mention for the Best Wall Treatment at the 2012 ASID awards! You can look for these two projects in the latest issue of Houston Design Resource Magazine!
Here is a closer look at the award winning projects!
The inspiration for this barrel ceiling mural came from the ancient frescoes in the Roman house of Livia Drusilla. The intent for this project was to imitate the ancient style and composition used at Villa Livia, while creating a work that is truly unique and fitting for the client’s distinct ceiling feature. Metallic gold plaster was used as a base for the mystical landscape. As layers of thin paint were added, the imagery was distressed giving it a look of timeworn elegance.
The walls are the focal point of this whimsical, elegant powder room. Large scale tulip blossoms are scattered throughout the room stretching across paneling and a doorway. The captivating walls seem to come alive in this unique space. The antique dresser, once belonging to the client’s grandmother, is fitted with a hand painted sink which served as the inspiration for the mural. Traditional artist oil paint was utilized in this project which gave the mural it’s luscious rich color
Thank you to the American Society of Interior Designers for this honor and thank you to my wonderful clients who allowed me to use their homes as my canvas!
