Children's Murals

I have just posted up a new video. This one is a slideshow of some of my favourite murals that I have painted for children's rooms.

They include my Peter Pan mural, the safari and jungle scenes and the Doctor Who Tardis, complete with my son dressed up as a Cyberman terrorizing his sister : )

Venetian Window Trompe l'oeil Mural

I finished painting this mural today - it is one that I have been itching to paint for some time now as I have always been fascinated with the eclectic facades and contrasting wall textures of the city of Venice.

As with the crumbling wall mural I recently painted - this will also be a short stage-by-stage film shot from a static camera.

It took me about ten hours to paint over a couple of days and I now have nearly an hour & a half of footage that I need to edit down into about 3-4 minutes.

Unfortunately about ten minutes of my initial footage was corrupted - luckily the rest survived intact (to my relief). It just means that I have no film of the very start of the mural when planning out the lattice work.

Hopefully I should have the film edited and uploaded to YouTube within a couple of days.
