I was commissioned to paint the scene of the ‘Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes’ from the university of Notre Dame in Indiana this month. The mural was to be outside on stucco. I though because of the theme, the grotto and the place, it would be nice to paint it with venetian plaster. It will also last longer once sealed compared to paint. It worked out really well and the large stones seem to have more depth being painted with venetian plaster. the venetian plaster I use is of travertine and marble base. There was also real stone work on the top of the wall and the sides, which I mimicked color and shapes gradually to balance with the mural.
