How to Paint a Mural : Painting Mural Rivers


I felt the need to come away from the tiger
now. I’ve come to a point where I’m happy with him. There’s still a lot to do on him
of course, but I’m going to go into the background now. And I just feel drawn. I always work
intuitively: what do I feel like doing next? So this blue I have mixed up at a local paint
store. And how I did that… I took a photograph of clouds that I had that I took. And there
was a section of the blue sky. And I asked them to make that blue for me. So they put
that on their special machine and came up with this blue. So I’m using this blue for
the sky and also for the base of the lake and the river, which is what I’m going to
do now. One of the things with wall murals is you get a lot of splashes. So yes, logically,
you should work from the top to the bottom. But I don’t do logic. As far as I’m concerned,
spirit and intuition are not logical. It’s the feminine side. And feminine is not always
logical, but beautiful and creative. When I allow that feminine side to come out of
myself into the work that I do, then we don?t’ have logic. This is just a very rough shape
right now. What I have to keep bearing in mind is that the river is coming from up in
the mountains, meandering its way down. This is going to be a lake. How are the mountains
going to come behind it? So what I really don’t want is for the river, the lake to suddenly
have to go uphill. So I’ve got to make sure that I keep it level to the other things I’ve
got in the other painting. And the only way to do that is to keep stepping back and looking.
So this will probably change here. And right now, that’s as much as I’m going to do for
now. I’m tired. I’m in an Indian restaurant. They serve good food. I’m going to have lunch.
