Hand Painted Mural      Date - April 2004      Location - Southgate


Please scroll down the page to see the photos of the mural



For this mural I have decided to show more of the actual painting process, to give more of an understanding of the work involved in creating a mural. The first pictures show the completed mural, then you will see how it actually came to be, from the early concept sketches, through the initial background colour washes, the working up of the background, the middle ground details, and finally the characters and foreground.

I'm sure you'll find it an interesting insight into the creation process..
