The first mural I did was of the River and Rail logo. They wanted it to look old like the building. This is the spot it was going on.
Next, I did a painting of a spanish looking donkey beside a chalk board wall. Think 3 Amigos!! Here was the initial sketch.
The chalk board paint was purchased at Sherwin Williams and worked real well.
Then, they wanted the yellow rail road logo painting done real big beside the elevated stage/ special dining table. This took a little time to get in proportion. I went through a lot of blue tape trying to mask it off correctly.
I have never used over head projectors- just T-Squares, rules, tape and string. Next came the yellow paint.
Now wording. (all done by hand-no stencils)
On a side note, our sweet little Phoebe was born last week. I was pregnant with her when I did all of these paintings. Can't wait to show her one day what "we" did!
