another fairy tale mural

This is inspired by one I did a few years ago, same theme, different color scheme and style. The lettering was done by a friend of the client, which was fine with me. I don't like lettering! Enjoy!

Re: another fairy tale mural

This is so precious! Princess rooms are all the rage lately.

Your castle is particularly nice and your princess has such a doll-like face. Very girly, indeed.

Re: another fairy tale mural

Fabulous....just completely awesome!

I'm looking for inspiration to update my preschooler's bedroom. She's such a princess....I love the banner over the door.

Superb work!

Re: another fairy tale mural

QUESTION for you Ruth. I'm working on a fairy tale castle too and I was wondering where you found your reference? I've been trying to create my own, but I ALWAYS tend to make things too....well, I don't know what the word is......detailed/extravagant/complex.....

Beautifully done Ruth. I like your use of the complimentary colors of pink and green throughout.

Re: another fairy tale mural

Thanks so much for your comments, y'all! Robin, I did a search for castle images on google and also in the WC reference library. This castle is kind of a composite/made-up one based on a couple of pictures I found.
