Magical World Mural - Clouds, Forests, and the Sun!


Here's a couple photos of my progress so far. I've got the major work for the clouds, hills and sun done. I'm currently working on the forest.


I thought things were moving along nicely, considering time restraints, but I realized when I start getting into the smaller details, it will actually take more time. This is where loosening up my style to be more simple and bold on mural details (since they are meant to be looked at from across the room) might come in handy.

Beautiful, dreamy, & fun - love it!! I assume she's not sleeping in there currently? Can work on it whenever you have time? I've had the hardest time finishing Bird's mural.

Thanks!! No, not sleeping in there yet. That's one of the reasons I want to finish it soon! I have to get all my stuff back upstairs, then I'll work on it when she sleeps or is out with her dad. The detail work is the most time consuming, though.
