DAY 8 - DETAILS
We wanted a more vibrant green than we were able to get with the natural dyes so Stuart added a monstera plant at the base of the tree near the fountain using acrylic paint. He also made the tree trunk larger and added some leaves up top.
Gerardo, and his student helper, Cesar, worked on the trees on the right side of the Fresco today. There is a paper spider monkey in the tree for now until it is painted on. There are real plants in the picture as well as painted ones. When it is finished we will have the base of the wall heavily planted and orchids growing live in the "trees."
