"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
