Summer garden mural project

During a summer like we have never know before, many people spent more time than ever in their gardens (if, of course, they were lucky enough to have one). Summer 2020 became the year of garden improvements, and what better way to make a dramatic change to a large, plain wall, than to paint a mural on it? 

I was invited to design a garden mural based on an Alpine mountain scene, using silhouette shapes and a blue/grey colour palette. 

The wall was first painted in a pale grey masonry paint, and then the mural painted on top. The wall was over 9 metres long, and took a lot of paint to cover! Lastly, 2 coats of varnish were added to help protect the mural from the elements for years to come.
