A project of renovation that one room of the existing steel reinforced concrete building.
"Grazing" is one of the technique of the oil painting, how to paint to put semitransparent paint on a canvas, this technique is for fix the tone of the whole screen and give the transparency of the color. I used the technique that resembled it and put light white on interior. I brushed white, an old concrete wall and a kitchen door which faded, a switchboard, the glass of the door carefully.
As for grazing of the oil painting, it is repeated a color as the last finish after a motif was completed. This interior decoration has an old room, I put to the surface a little by little. I wanted to give the atmosphere that covered the surface with white "glaze" not to cover the conventional room. Finally, it turned into white other than the scenery outside the window, and a room became bright. I did a brush the old facilities machinery which I was not able to have made newly to show a color of the groundwork, so oldness is transparent appeared. The narrow white line that is made by vertical window swings divides a domain in the room. Because the trace of the brush was left thinly in this room, I saw it like a picture when I photographed it.
