Let’s face facts, some are gifted with a sense of proportion and aesthetic sense and some are not. The well-known metaphor that “beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. In the case of the house owner that would very well lie in the homeowner’s eyes regardless of the fact of them having a good aesthetic sense or not. With a professional Painter in Hornsby, the painter has to see beyond what is aesthetically correct and try to peek inside the mind of the house owner to see what their yearnings are. Perhaps the professional could offer suggestions that would appeal to the house owner and yet have widespread grace and charm.

Like skin is to a human in outward appearance, somewhat similar is paint to a residence or office building. A person with pockmarks or acid burns would tend to be not so visually attractive. A completed grey structure of a building is very much like an unfinished painting, just waiting for a transformation with nice and beautifully applied paint. There are 3 stages to a final reality check in choosing a colour scheme for one’s residence or office building.

Firstly to imagine so in one’s mind. The interim next step is to view that on a computer in 2D or a 3D CAD as a model. Lastly to view the finished structure in absoluteness. The vision in the mind and in realism are seldom going to be an exact match. Viewing the proposed colour scheme on a computer is a stop-gap step that narrows the gap between visualizing and actuality. I used the words “narrows the gap” because of the disparity in colours between what is being displayed on the computer screen or colour print out as well as the discrepancy between a paint company shade card and how different these look in reality. A good painter in Hornsby might suggest some modern wall paint decorating techniques,

  • Strie. To explain to a layman such a technique has a nexus to hair streaking done by some females. Strie is basically vertical stripes on a wall. A glaze is mixed with the paint and then an uneven paint roller or uneven brush is dragged vertically downwards over the paint.
  • Consequently, beautiful vertical stripes are made on the wall
  • Parchment stripes and parchment finish Parchment writing was done on animal skins a long time ago. As most people would notice that even old paper tends to turn a golden yellow over time and so did the animal skins. Parchment finish on a wall is not all that difficult to do and could be accomplished by semi-skilled people. Parchment stripes would tend to imply a two-tone parchment finish done in alternating wide stripes of dark and light coloured parchment.
  • Crosshatch In such a technique first, the masking of areas such as windows and door frames are carried out. Wet paint is applied. Then with a dry brush horizontal and vertical strokes are applied in a calculated and artistic pattern forming a cross hatch.
