Mural Progress

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

I'm officially ALL done drawing out things on my mural. Those that have read my previous posts, know I am working on a mural for the Orphanage in Zambia. It's about 8.5 foot wide - so I have lots to fill. AlhumduliLlah I'm happy with how things are to paint!! But I'll have to put that on hold since I have other work to do.

This is just part of the whole mural to show you the process of things. I've added lots of detail, I prefer to work this way, others add the detail after. (Photograph isn't that clear, sorry)
And as you have noticed, I did stretch the canvas - they'll hang it unstretched like wall paper.

I took this pic for those that have a large surface to work with. I normally never use a grid - but again, because it's large you need to get proportions right. Here is a tip: measure where you'd like the lines and use thread taped at each end at your grid marks. It saves SO much time and cleaner than drawing on lines.
