Elephant Mural Painting


Hello Friends! This is a step-by-step photo report from last weekend's mural painting in Warsaw.

It was a private commission (actually it was a gift for my friend's daughter). She's turning two years old soon, and I thought that perhaps she would appreciate having an elephant in her bedroom once she gets a bit older. Elephants symbolize wisdom, good memory, and are regarded sacred in many religions, especially Hinduism (Ganesha is a Hindu deity with an elephant's head).

Please enjoy!

At first, there was a blank wall. And the weather was stormy, so I had to use artificial light to see anything.

I started working simultaneously on the base colours, and on the details.

I had to work quick, but fortunately, I had a little helper (this is the girl I wrote about previously).

I was so focused on working, I started pulling faces. :D
