Okay last one from the #paintscrapes gallery, only because this one makes me think of #Rothko but without the ego and sanctimony.

Escaping the rain and having a roaring fire to finish burning the last of our decayed mouldings from our refurbishment. Hundreds of years of paint, love doing "paint shapes" to determine the original historic colours on listed buildings. I have a particular addictive fascination with period mouldings. This rotten moulding infested with Death Watch Beatle was removed and painstakingly replicated for our Kitchen on your restored house in Kent. #architecture #mouldings #perioddetails #restoration #conservation #designer #architect #kitchen #timber #moulding #firewood #fires #seaside #coast #replicated #rainyday #interiordesign #designer #paintscrapes #historic #listedbuildings #grade1

#WindsorStation , 1886, replaced the 1859 version with this multilevel delight. Ramp here, bridge over there, all squeezed together. Repainted in very dark, bold, #originalcolours the 90s, as part of the first proper upgrade of all the stations for decades. The #tuckpointing of the #polychromebrick is much more recent, really lifts it, looks fantastic, must have cost a mint. The repainting was part of the first general upgrade for decades, included restoring many historic stations, in this case a very #VictorianColourScheme , determined by #paintscrapes , a bit shocking at the time - a very #darkbrown , with #yellowochre contrast and #deepcream highlights. The dark brown matches the dark brown #HawthornBricks . The final effect is so rich ! Hard to believe the place was once all very run down, the street level building empty, all the #woodwork painted white, the doors, and #ironwork painted green. Then run down again by 2010, with peeling paint and graffiti - goad and a bit surprised it was further restored, keeping the dark colours, instead of lightened up.

lately I've been struggling with crippling uncertainty about my chosen career path bc I just couldn't produce work that wasn't entirely predictable of meβ€”but today I started something new and I'm trying to give myself credit. it isn't finished, but I like it more than anything I've done so far this semester. #painting #art #artstudent #palette #paintscrapes #collage

Paint scrapes from tonight. Collateral damage I guess.. What do I do with these?! They're too cool to throw away but nothing as "thought out" as my other pieces... Maybe that's why I like them so much...? #paintscrapes #palette #doItforTheProcess #artbymonikakralicek

Still in the world of #paintscrapes sometimes they reveal real treasure like this #handpaintedsign last thing listed here is "master in lunacy" who had an office on the top floor of my building.

Back in the studio cleaning my paint palate! #almosttoprettytothrowaway #paintscrapes #louisianaart
