I've spent the past week at my mother's home in Richland painting a mural on the inside of her garage. Since most of the time, the garage door is closed, it won't be terribly visible, but that's okay. Mom likes it, and she paid for it, so she gets to have the most enjoyment of it!
Here are some work-in-progress photos.
This is what I started with -- the wall had already been patched, primed, and prepped with some sky and sand colors.
I repainted parts of the background colors to suit the design, and added water.
This lighthouse took the longest -- there were panels on the door with curved edges that were very hard to paint over. I did the whole thing without rulers, and am happy I wound up with pretty straight lines.
I made some modifications to the lighthouse, and then added some headlands, with another lighthouse on the right hand one.
Next came a boat, some pilings, and a beach umbrella.
And then there were the hot air balloons...these were especially difficult, as I had to climb a tall step ladder to reach these areas, up to the top step. Finally, I put in a pelican on a piling, and a few shore birds, and called it good.
A challenging project -- glad it is done!
