12/13 (2): Colorways are here!
-these (like the concept sketch) are rough plans - they aren't nearly as detailed or nuanced as the final piece will be.
-colorways can be weird to look at all together - it tends to make you think along the lines of 'find the 12 differences' rather than giving an overall impression of each palette. SO! I've put them in a slideshow to look at one at a time.
-they are all more or less the same saturation and value (intensity of color and light/darkness). These factors are easily changeable, so if you like one but it seems too dark just let me know :)
-the yellow is an approximation of the current wall color.
-I hope I'm not overwhelming you with options! You can choose one outright, or rank them, or give them ratings... I just want to give you as much control over this as possible.
12/13: I added some progress images just for fun (and to keep you updated)
-the short hair is sort of a placeholder right now, but I'm liking the idea of it since it gives the girl a stronger silhouette. Plus, for a little girl climbing in trees in the mountainside, long hair seems a little impractical...! (although I guess you could say the same thing about the dress haha - but that's staying for sure) So -
-I added a couple pictures of some maybe-maybe hairdos too, just to see what you think.
12/11: The latest composition is up!
-I switched it out with the old one and deleted the other options for clarity - so you'll see it when you scroll down.
-I also retrofitted it to the room model that Josh made, just for kicks.
-Here is the final contract, a jpg of the final composition/concept sketch (same as below), and the first invoice (payable when I get up there on Sunday). Please send me a signed copy of the contract at your earliest convenience (by whatever method is easiest.)
12/5: Okay, I have updated the pictures for 'page 1'.
-There are a couple new reference photos (for the tree and possible sky).
-We also have some options to figure out - which wall and whether you would like some ceiling/sky painting...!
-I've figured out some numbers for the price, but I'd like to talk about the design first, before discussing that - see if you'd like anything changed, added, etc.
12/4: Hi there! Below are two possible murals. Before you look at them, I have a couple of notes first:
-please keep in mind that these are rough sketches - the styles and colors we discussed absolutely still apply.
-I included a couple of reference pictures for each to help explicate them a little.
-the lines on both are approximations of where the image might sit on the wall (both spill over to the neighboring walls some), but ultimately they will piece-out more, like the calvin and hobbes mural we looked at.
peacock in tree, antelope in background
little girl nestled between branches, book in lap, feathers and ribbons in her hair
most detail: plants in foreground, full background, complex tree
giant little girl nestled between hills, book in lap, robes spilling down the hillside
peacock on her shoulder, birds perched on and flying around her book, deer(?) peeking out of copse
simpler, more about the girl and less about the surroundings, a little surreal
