The Birth of an Idea

I love painting murals but I don’t like creating detailed drawings before hand.

I prefer to do loose sketches like these that I did for a potential playroom mural.
I like to keep it loose just focusing on the shape, movement and feel of the item or landscape.

The actual details are much more fun for me to do on the spot. Letting them come through me…new and fresh.

I didn’t end up doing this job because they had water damage in the room that needed to be repaired but I really like the feel of these sketches…especially the sitting mermaid.

Who knows…maybe they will end up in my house somewhere!

I wish I could sketch as beautifully! They're so carefree!
