Our local Arts Council contacted me and asked me if I would do a paint by number mural for our upcoming Wine & Art Festival.....something that kids could paint and could be displayed at other festivals in the future.
Like an idiot, I said yes. LOL.
I have a rough sketch worked out...a collage of our county, with the lake and mountains in the background and the foreground items representing the things you can see and do here (we are a tourist haven, huge lake and big ski resort, tons of hiking, camping, wildlife, etc.). Now I have to make a grid to get the sketch from 8x10 inches to 5x7 feet....paint in the background because it requires extensive shading....add in the foreground items in white....figure out the colors for them and number each area so the kids can paint them in. Oy Vay.
In the end, this will be a good thing because I will probably get some more commission work out of it......but it's become a major undertaking!
Does anyone else paint murals?? Or anything?? Any other artists out there??
