Day 4 - TREES GROWING FROM TOPS DOWN
This view is looking down from the balcony outside the glass wall of our office. Stuart is adding a palm like tree the top of which is visible in the distance over the fountain wall.
In the photo to the right Gerardo is painting a tree on the opposite end of the wall. Here he is troweling on fresh cement, then he will paint on the cement. As the lime and pigment mixture dries it undergoes a chemical bonding with the cement fixing the color in the cement. The color will remain as long as the cement does.
