Church Painting: Day Seven...

 
 
 
 

  We are weeks from the chapel being completed (there are lots of details to add), but the color scheme is pretty much complete!  Someday we'll be able to replace the icon prints mounted on boards with hand-painted frescoes, but I just love how it is all coming together.  We added the terracotta line around the perimeter of the walls and around the windows yesterday.  In addition, we also mostly completed he lightest blue line around the edge of the ceiling and work was begun on the cross in the center of the ceiling.

We had to clean everything up this morning and get the church ready for weekend services.  It takes about two hours to either take everything apart or put everything back together, which is a bit difficult, but it was nice to see that the color choices were spot on when the Icons and church furnishings were put back in place!

It looks beautiful. I really like the different shades of blue in the centre of the ceiling. It gives the impression of being a dome. Very, very nice.
