The details in the foreground of the various plants and flowers proved to be very time-consuming, indeed. One of the biggest challenges was matching colors that I had applied two months prior. Having never had any formal training in the fine arts I need to “level-up my alchemy skills” as they would say in the gaming world (i.e., teach myself color theory). I was a little jittery about the relief effect because I was unsure how my idea on tinting the existing wall color was going to work out. It was meant to be subtle but noticeable, I believe it worked.
Well, what else to say that I have not already said. This has been a WONDERFUL experience and I am GRATEFUL to Larry and Nancy for their patience throughout this project. As you can see in the pictures, life went on in their living room while the main wall was covered in paint, paper, and tape for several months. Quickly welcomed into the Plympton home and treated as part of the family, rights to the fridge were given and it became customary for me to grab a glass of diet root beer. At times, I was isolated in my world with headphones on and other times engaged in the festivities such as catching up on their favorite shows on the DVR – “Top Gear” ROCKS! Such are the joys of working for friends!
So Here it is.
