Zen Garden Mural Beginning Stages

Following is a peak at my latest project. I'm painting a mural in the reception area of a massage therapy business in Ames called Zen Garden.





Water soluble graphite was a great choice for drawing the design on the wall. It is easily removed with a damp cloth. Most of the paint I'm using is Liquitex Soft Body. I mix it with Liquitex Matte Medium at about 50%.
Stayed tuned for updates.

Amazing! Is there a medium that you can apply when done to make the mural more durable or is that a natural part of the paints you are using? I love how the tree is looking 3-D even on my computer screen, so I imagine the effect in person is that much more so. I hope to see it in person when finished. Love ya', Chickie Sis
