still life mural

This living room has very high ceiling, lots of empty wall space above the standard-height doorways. The people wanted it to look like a niche up there with some interesting "stuff" in it.

Acrylic on wall, 6 feet wide and 15 inches high, about 10 feet above floor level.

Wow, excellant. I love the way you paint. Beautiful colors and great ideas.
What kind of acrylic paint do you use on walls? Do you have to sand the wall if it has texture on it, before you paint?

Thanks y'all, for your comments! Gnu -- LOL .

Katz, I use artist quality acrylics, not the craft-store kind. I just paint on whatever texture is there. Look at some of my other posts about hotel pool murals to see some of the rough stuff I have to paint on sometimes!
