Having photographed several frescoes from different
ages over the years, it seemed time to create them
myself using the original Medieval/Renaissance
methods. To start, here is a fresco made from scratch,
painted and aged to look from about 6,000BC.
This image is part of an ancient oceanic series I've
been working on, pictured beneath Ancient Fish:

NEW FRESCOES

Created in the beautiful northeast corner of Oahu a
few weeks ago, here is the next group of the series:

Star Fish 2016 © geneberryhill

Bi-valve Shell 2016 © geneberryhill

Sun Perch 2016 © geneberryhill

Note the difference in appearance of these
4 frescoes from the Ancient Fish. This is
due to using materials available in Hawaii
such as a rougher textured sand in the lime
plaster mix. Still, they are all cave art style buon
frescoes, painted with natural earth minerals.
