I started working on a privately commissioned mural last spring, but had to quit for the summer because of the rain and the heat. This weekend, I was finally able to finish it up. I started by drawing it on in chalk, then filling everything in in white. Then it was just a matter of adding color. I used an exterior enamel paint since it’ll be exposed to the elements. Each panel took about 2-3 hours, but it turned out well and I’m happy with it. And even more importantly, the owner is happy with it!

Here you can see some of the chalk lines and the first layer of white, as well as the pink on a few flowers.

Now I just have to polyurethane the hell out of it to preserve it!
