Well the weather has been glorious these past couple of weeks and I'm getting a bit of a tan working outside! The mural is looking close to completion and I'm getting lots of positive feedback from all the children and teachers at the school, not to mention all the parents and members of the general public as they go past!
Everyone agrees that it is a big improvement and makes the school entrance so much brighter and colourful. I've been working on this for 14 days now and as you can see, I've completed all the major details in the mural. I still have a few more things to add and the children have yet to add their bits. They will be making stencils of various shapes that will be sprayed onto the wall next week. I've also painted the right end wall with a rainbow. The left hand wall leading to the entrance is yet to worked on further.
It's taking a little longer than I expected to complete but this is probably one of the roughest wall surfaces that I have painted on for a long time. It also doesn't speed things up when I keep stopping to talk to people who comment!
