One of the ways to make the atmosphere unique is the creation of bas-reliefs. Such work can hardly be called a craft; rather, it is an art that requires an individual approach and the presence of certain skills. The material for the stucco paintings are plaster or plaster, and the brush replaces the usual spatula. For some elements, templates are used. Small leaves, petals, other details are first cast from plaster, and then implanted into the composition.
The bas-reliefs in combination with the lighting look spectacular. Volumetric, literally growing out of the wall, they visually expand the space and make the situation richer.
It is possible to decorate with the help of bas-reliefs various premises according to the purpose. Such sculptures are durable, which means that the choice of topics should be approached consciously.
And this self-taught designer from Canada doesn’t even need a markup. As a builder, Bernie Mitchell accidentally tried to make volumetric figures on the walls with a spatula. This occupation was so fascinating that he began to improve and hone his skills, looking for all the new tools for drawing details. There are strokes in the master's works, for the creation of which a regular spoon was needed. In the case when fine drawing is required, even leaves and grass prints are used.
Unusual passion quickly became popular and Bernie brought fame. Landscapes and animalistic volumetric paintings created by him can be seen in the private possession of Canadians. The designer himself claims that he draws inspiration while admiring the nature of his native land.
Almost everyone will be able to make ordinary repairs, but few will risk creating a bas-relief. Meanwhile, the technology is not complex, and the process of the birth of three-dimensional paintings is fascinating.
