Mural Done

My mural is complete, after four days of work. The next four entries show some of the views of the walls in the powder room. Here's how it worked:
Day 1: Took down switch plates, toilet paper holder, towel racks
Taped around edges with blue painter's tape
Plastic sheets and paper towels down for protection
Sanded areas to repair, then rolled latex paint over areas
Sketched out new views with vine charcoal
Started with mountains, then distant hills all around the four sides
Blocked in the new trees and sketched in the village and farm

It was a lot of prep work on the first day, and blocking in stuff lightly. This is the view of the corner behind the toilet. Thanks for looking.
