My client wanted some decorative grape vines but didn’t want them to have a “stenciled” look. So I painted vines on either side of these windows and made the vines heavily textured to look like they have been there for a long time. I painted a shadow onto the wall to make the entire vine pop out and look more three dimensional. To add further interest and make a conversation starter, I incorporated the outline of Italy into the negative space of this vine, and Tuscany in the other vine. Can you see the boot shape of Italy in this photo?
