ROMAN WALLS terracotta collection features authentic images, photographed in the center of the ancient city of Rome by Leanne.
Terracotta 4 is a strongly layered ochre pigment very common to the ancient walls of Rome. This heavily weathered, multi-coloured effect is a clear testament to hundreds of years of exposure to sun and rain.
Textured, worn and washed, this old wall was once painted with natural pigments. It certainly speaks of an ancient Mediterranean tradition.
The image includes a large highly textured surface. Pompeii red pigments are still common to the traditional Roman colour palette. Showing up through the layers are some details, scratches and scrapes. A much brighter orange layer was previous to the dark red. Bleached lime grit adds sparkle to the scene. You will notice the plaster has fallen off below. This could offer an opportunity for an interesting text divider or footer.
