What a wonderful transitional project for me with excellent clients to “practice” with;)
We started with this image:
The entire process took a total of about 5 hours, start to finish. I used chalk to do a rough sketch which I learned is much easier to hide/cover than pencil. I also learned to bring everything you think you need to someone’s house and more – aka: not enough paint/water cups and plastic to cover the flooring lol. The white was chosen by the clients and was beautiful against the camel wall coloring. I especially love how the tree expands onto the adjoining walls – a decision made while laying it out. I find it exhilarating how we start with an image but it ultimately becomes the clients own through little tweaks and customization’s made (cut the cheesy birds for instance).
