Mural Project – Phase 2

Inside of brewery painting brew kettles

The larger version of the mural study, 18″ x 36″

I have now finished a larger study of the mural concept for the Snow Goose Restaurant and Sleeping Lady Brewing Company’s outside wall.  I took photos of both the smaller painting and the new larger one and superimposed them in Photoshop onto the building, a picture of which I had taken earlier this summer.  I am still undecided about whether I like the red or green floor option.  The red floor, which actually exists in the brewery, seems like it diminishes the beauty of the copper kettles.  I decided to see what it would look like if it was green.  I think the green makes the copper brew kettles pop a bit more, but I wonder if it is clashing with the green stripe on the building.  I set up an appointment for this Friday with the boss to discuss the two options.  The real scary part ensues if he gives me the go-ahead, because I have to make the biggest painting I have ever made.  I wonder if they will paint the floor of the brewery green after the mural is installed?  I would really appreciate your feedback, so please vote for your favorite option below in the Mural Poll.

    Congratulations on the commission. Will be a good learning experience, eh. What do you have to do, if anything regarding UV protection for a mural? Have seen a lot of them fade over time, would be good to try to avoid. I voted for red, think it fits the rest of the composition — and if it seems too strong you could ease it slightly toward a duller/brick red and make the kettles brighter or something.
