That is quite beautiful. It would be fantastic to do a whole wall of these, a giant Steampunk scene!

just "fresco" - not "al fresco"

very nicely done. It's a fun technique no?

A worthy undertaking, sir; I salute you.

In English, a "fresco" is a painting created by applying pigment to damp ("fresh" or "fresco") plaster, and "al fresco" or "in the fresh" means "outdoors" and is most often used to describe a style of dining.

Sadly, the nature of plaster means that a fresco al fresco would have a very short life expectancy, although you could apply a transparent weatherproof coating to protect it. (A fresco fijo al fresco? That would be "fresco" (cool).)

Oh, WOW! Is that a made of wood? That is an impressive amount of paint! How old is your house? Also, is that original coloured paint I can see on the wooden flowers? If I were you, I would research when the building was built, and what style was used. Have a look under all that paint to see the original colours, it is an amazing find!

The building belongs to the Eixample in Barcelona. This whole neighborhood is modernist style (late XIX century early XX). You can see examples in this post alrededordelmundo
The ceiling is plaster ... These ceilings were decorated as the money from the owner of the flat. I have seen ceilings painted with scenes countryside, religious ... . My roof was just colored. The roof has 7 layers of white pain :Pt ... In addition, the former owners pulled these figures from other rooms...

That is my favourite style of architecture! I am very envious of you living in a building like that! I am going to visit Spain at the end of the year, mostly to see the building! In the blog you linked to, who's building is the picture at the top? Is it Gaudi? I don't recognise it..

*le gasp*

You don't live in a Gaudi do you?

Good lord - I'm jealous. Even that you're in the same neighborhood is huge.

Good luck with the restoration.

The photo blog is the home "Comalat" of the architect Salvador Valeri i Pupurull.
Gaudi was a genius, but on barcelona houses there are other equally spectacular architects. But they are less known...
