So today I started the mural that i've been commissioned to paint at Starbucks.
Here is the ugly white wall before I started:Got set up with my pencils and drew out a rough sketch to work from before I started working in colour. I hate this bit, everything always looks terrible at the beginning, and I always feel a bit daunted when I have a large area to paint. So I put in the base colours with a large brush. Had a little panic when I discovered that i'd forgotten to buy black paint, but seemed to make do with dark blue for today.
I probably got as much paint on the floor as the walls, but for several hours work it seems to be looking okay so far.
My arms are aching. Updates tomorrow...
