Part 3 Installation and finishing touches to the Polly mural

The installation took a morning to apply then a further few hours to do the finishing touches
the site

We used clay based adhesive,,, so the mural can easily be removed and re installed at a later date
Needed two of us to work on the project

The finished product ..... before we trimmed and I touched up and worked on the canvas and extended the gold paint.

Completed mural... however brass light switches were added later.

Part 2... "Polly Mural, from concept to final installation"

middle right section
Most of the work on the Polly mural which painted in the studio was fairly time consuming.... I put more detail in to the areas, perhaps more than I would have done if I had painted directly on the wall.
constantly working the two parts together

"Polly's Garden Party " My first Mural on canvas.... from concept to final installation... Part 1

An extremely long time since I have posted anything on this blog..... the main reason is I have a blog on my website but due to being so busy over the last few months I have just not had a chance to update my website and consequently I am now having problems actually updating the blog and the other pages.
I am not very technical at the best of times so I need to do my homework to bring my website into 2016..... irritated to say the least.
However I thought I would share here the last project I completed at the end of last year.

My "Pollys Garden Party" mural has been painted on to canvas in two parts and applied to the wall using a clay based adhesive.  Each piece is 1metre wide and 2.7 metres long. Here are a few photos of the work in progress.

First, a rough sketch to establish layout
After mapping out the layout on the canvas and pencilling in the main motifs, I then mixed the main colours.

Then I worked the layout out by pinning on to the wall and applying the large areas of colour

Back in the studio to work on all the areas in greater detail
