surfing mural for little boy's room

This is the main mural, over the bed... about 4x8'...the whole thing and some closeups. There will also be a big palm tree on another wall, and a shark under a window.

Re: surfing mural for little boy's room

it's amazing what you can do with little dabs of color here and there, like the red in the water casting a shadow from the surfboard, or the purples in the shadows. It's things like this that just seem to be second nature for you, that I struggle with. Id love to be able to get a little looser, and your work gives me great examples....always love to see your new stuff!

Re: surfing mural for little boy's room

Are you still working on this one? IT's one of my favorites. I think your style lends itslef really well to the subject matter and the sense of light is awesome. I also like that it's a vignette.

I'm wishing for just a touch more detail in their faces...just a little dash of dark in the eyes, a little shadow here and there.

Sunny, fun, casual...I love it.
