Pencil & Paper
It all starts here ...
Once I'm happy with the illustration, it gets scanned and coloured in Photoshop.
Once the mural is sketched on the wall, it's time to get to work. I generally use acrylic paints as they're the easiest to work with. On a larger mural, I will use latex wall paint, simply because it covers so well, and is just as mixable as acrylic paints.

I made the decision during painting to intensify the colours just so the mural stands out more than it would have otherwise.
