Fresco Artistic Decorating

Summary:

I am a fully qualified commercial and domestic painter and decorator trading under my company name of Fresco Artistic Decorating.
I work to a high standard with all painting techniques, painting effects and wallpaper hanging.
All jobs are undertaken with the utmost care to protect your home and to achieve the quality finish your expect from a professional painter and decorator.
Aswell as offering all the services you would expect from my trade, I also specialise in services of the Artistic variety, inparticular Murals, as this is a direct translation of my company name, Fresco.
Feature walls are a great way to breathe life into a room without a full transformation. What better way to achieve that than with a personalised mural?
Maybe you have a favourite furnishing, image or design, everything can be tailored to your needs.
This could all be put to canvas or furniture if preferred, there really is no limit when bringing you ideas to life.
Whether you are looking for a freshen up, complete re-decoration or a feature wall to bring a bit of pazaz to a room, Fresco Artistic Decorating has the service you require.

Projects

Cool, contemporary colour scheme with specialist plaster effect

This freshly painted bedroom features a cool green base colour with a bold contrasting deep purple feature wall to bring the room some depth.
Not only this, the walk in wardrobe behind the feature wall has a specialist effect on the plaster which has made it take on a purple tone which compliments the deep purple paint.
The plaster would ususally be polished up but, taking a modern twist on an old classic, there is light reflecting elements in the plaster to enhance the blue light installed which really gives that wow factor we were going for.
This effect was created by Ross Ward, who really is a skilled craftsman.

Crying woman

this is a work in progress, started drawing straight to canvas.......no idea how to finish yet!!!

Demitri from Paris

Same pop art style canvas but the most challenging part was the glitter ball, ended up with 5 layers of paint, the last being radiator paint just to get the reflectiveness right!

Bar-Code Style Stripes

I wanted to keep a light and airy colour scheme to this room as there was a great light source from the window.
I used pastel colours to achieve this and picked out the light green and lilac for the adjacent walls to bring the room together. I found a roller blind to match exactly which finished it all off perfectly.

Clean Magnolia

Nearly all rented properties are expected to be painted in magnolia as it is a neutral base.
Here is an example of my standard of clean magnolia with fresh white woodwork which shows of the sharpe lines and airy feel to the room.

wallpaper coving

surprising how much plotting took place in these little coves to match the pattern perfectly to give the appearance of one piece of wallpaper hung, when in fact there was three small pieces, carefully crafted and fitted to give the flowing pattern.

Feature wall papering

wish these pics were a little clearer so you could see the unbreakable pattern that was achieved when hanging this paper!!

Colour washing

This is a basic example of colour washed over the top of another to compliment each other....

Graining

Here are two examples of graining I have produced, one with a clean stencil over the top (not my choice but required for assessing)!!
Fooled a few people with these fake wood paintings, one of which is free-hand.

glase and wipe effect

this is a basic example of a glase and wipe effect, typically used in period properties.
The anaglypta paper's pattern is brought out by the glazed used over the top of a plain base.

Amy Winehouse

i created this canvas using a colour scheme of a soft furnishing, inspired by pop art!!

Skulls canvas


this is a canvas with skulls detailed in the background, if you look closely there are three shades if skulls with shapes!!!

Dancing silhouette

This mural was to convert an old built in fishtank into something more visually pleasing.
I added diamontes to the head which really catch the light.

Floral wall art

This was the first mural i painted, all freehand, think it came out rather well!!
