18th Century Style Autumn Harvest Ceiling


For this project, the client wished to have a ceiling painting based on an 18th Century etching depicting a harvest celebration as the central theme.

Four 18th Century grisaille corners by Jacob de Wit depicting the four seasons were adapted for the corners of the ceiling. The light and shade of the grisailles were reversed to match the orientation of the light in the room.

The work was painted in oil directly on the plastered ceiling.

Once the painting was completed patinas were applied to simulate age.
