Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch' intrate. Calligraphy on the wall.

Leave any hope (expectation), do you want to come in?

Actually I didn't know this famous phrase before I had to write it on the wall, I really like it, and I'm very pleased with the finished result. Using acrylic paint and brush on the wall,  the main problem was to get the proper thickness of the paint, which sometimes allows you to see the "brush stroke" which I really like it, before start to do the work I've asked how they wanted, the work in "black perfect letter" or a "letter which sometimes you can see the brush", they allowed me to leave the stroke of the brush.

The work, took me a while to be avaiable to center it properly, but finally I did it, and the last night before go to do it, I changed everything, the letter size, the name of the author I changed the colour, from red to grey, which really did worked properly. Because is not the same work on paper as a "framed paint" that work on a wall, that belongs to the whole house. And this last modifications worked really well.

Carefull with the Cat! (I've changed a bit the colors to show better the grey text),

How it works the grey text, which belongs to the text, but it wasn't the main thing of the work.
You don't see it at the first sight, you see it at the second, which this is what I wanted.

I'm pleased with the result, and the owners of the house, very pleased.

So all we happy! are you?

  1. Hi, i really appreciate this work.
    Congratulations! Dante's name in gray was a great solution and runs perfect.
    But actualy you misspell 2 words:
    "Ogne" actualy is Ogni, and "Intrate" is Entrate.
    So the right writing is:
    Lasciate ogni speranza voi che entrate.

    Please forgive my intrusion here.
    All the best
