Castle Mural

I started a new mural today. Put in about 7 1/2 hours and I. Am. Spent! Ow.

Using a projector again (having sketched out the image a few days ago). This was very different from the Spider man cityscape.

I traced out the castle and then using brown paint started painting in the shadows.
Dark blue framing the castle (to make it POP).

My client picked out purple for the castle. Using an eggplant for shadows (painting over the brown) and a lighter shade for the main body. It looks good.

It's only about 80-90% finished. I still need to add trees, the road, a horse and details...lots and lots of detail.
