Colors of Barcelona #4


, originally uploaded by farmboyz.

we spent a good amount of time speculating about how they got these fantastic finishes on the buildings of Barcelona. We decide that over the painted rough concrete base, one sets in place a thick (half inch?) stencil which is in-filled with a layer of plaster. This layer is painted (in this case, blue) before the stencil is removed.

I've never really put too much thought about visiting Spain, though I'm part Spanish. But these images make me want to walk the streets of Barcelona myself, gorgeous. Thanks for sharing, hope you guys are having a great time!
