This mural was so much fun to paint! I began with the blue ceiling and clouds. It grew on me as I applied cracks and leaves until I had to make myself stop before it took over like a medieval forest. I love the Monarch butterfly and Stick bug. The birds were sweet and a little shading really helped them pop off of the wall. Being able to enjoy what you do is a true blessing.
Below is day 1, ceiling clouds and wall definition. Cracks are so much fun if you understand the nature of how things break. Who would have thought I would take up the study of broken wall plaster?
