This is what I was able to get of the mural i painted in Colorado for my aunt. It was extremely difficult to paint this cuz of the small space I had to work in. Their house was built on a hill, so one half of the house went into the side of the hill. Instead of having the 2 bedrooms on the submerged floors be dark without windows, the dug holes down into the hill to the base of the rooms and lined the walls with cement so that at least some sunlight could get in. The downside...now you have windows facing a cement wall 2.5 feet from the window. So they asked me to paint a mountain scene, and, with 2.5 feet of space, acrylics, some very large spunge brushes and a ladder, I was able to paint this 9ft x 8ft mural.
