Nice paint technique. I love using glazes over a solid color. I have a feeling that is what they did. But, always love something different.

You can get that effect by using thin layers of colored plaster or by using different colors of glazes. However, my guess is that an artist painted this like he would a large scale painting. The random quality of strokes and visual plays on shading and color to create drama are signs of a true artist.
Well done, right!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Feeling Blue: Incorporating Color in New Ways
Texture enters into this beautiful oceanic scene, merging beautifully warmer tans and yellow hues with varying shades of blue. Next: Browse more home design photos
The unusual pairing of colors in this living room is a touch of genius. Pale turquoise shades pop when placed in an earthy environment. The artistic faux finish resembles the crystalline waters of an untrampled Caribbean coast; the same blue is repeated in the cushy sofa and chairs. The rustic columns flanking the entrance add to the natural feel. All in all, a gem.
Lisa Frederick added this to Watercolors Inspire Dreamy Walls
This wall, washed in subtle, gentle colors, brings an air of tranquility to the living area. The concrete pillars frame it in a way that funnels the eye straight toward the painted showpiece.
