MURALS

How to Paint a Mural, Part 1

Assignment: Paint a mural of a bunch of monkeys doing a bunch of different things on three walls and entry way of a baby’s room. Since the walls were 1,100 miles away the planning needed to be good. There was lots of emailing going on. The room, it’s windows, furniture, etc. were measured and graphed at 1 foot units. Various sketches were made of the monkeys. After changes, computer illustrations were made to give an idea of what the room would look like.

The image on the left is an initial sketch. Many changes were made after that. The middle computer image was done from scanned drawings placed to scale on a wall and then skewed to give the appearance of the corner of the room. The third image superimposed the scanned drawings over photos of the actual room.
