weekend project :)

mural painting!!! i was so excited when my dad n mom gave the permission to paint the back yard wall. actually i have another mural project for a children clothing store but since i've never done mural painting before i need to practice. so when i looked into the wide blank white wall, i got the idea! so the next day i grabbed my pencil and started drawing.

it's my first time so i did a lot of mistake. first i use a normal 2b pencil which is very wrong. the normal pencil leaves its mark even after i painted on it. so you still can see the grey line from afar which makes the painting not pretty. so i re-did that. i erased the pencil line and re-drew it with yellow pencil. it was such a waste of time, but it got better :) second, i don't use wall paint. i use aviant which is actually wood and iron paint. so it gives this shiny effect on the wall, it's kinda okay because it looks like a big sticker on the wall, but my uncle told me it'll be better and nicer if i use a normal wall paint. but well, this aviant paint is so much cheaper than the normal wall paint. never mind, i've got my lesson :)

it took me almost 3 days to finish, but not the kind of 3x24hours. i still got to do my daily activities, and sometimes the weather got too hot or it suddenly rains.. i thought it would be easy but turn out it's a bit complicated since i have no experience before. i don't even know the formula of combining the thinner into the paint, plus it took a lot of time to open the paint can. they all are so hard to be opened! i had to use a screwdriver.

what you see above has not 100% finished. i still haven't drawn the eyes and mouths and i still have other drawing to be painted. it's far-left from the sunflower, you can't see it on the pic. but i'm going to finish them all in this week. by the end of this week, everything will have been settled. promise :)
