I've painted a few wall murals in my time, and I am getting into it again if anybody is interested, below is a fairy fantasy chalk board wall I am working on at the moment. It's far from finished, expect these images to be updated as we go on.
a) The Fairy fantasy wall; below. ongoing...
b) Disney Jungle book wall mural theme, ongoing...
For wall murals, any theme can be painted to look cool. go to Murals or go to commissions.
The Space scene; right, is a wall I painted in Paulsgrove, Portsmouth: For a lad that was into deep space 9 star trek theme. And the Jungle book theme on the go below.
COMMISSIONS: are easy to arrange, any subject; for example: Your house/building and grounds, your animals (especially horses and dogs) your vehicles even. Or just and heirloom landscape of your locale and choice.Prices for commissions are met when contacted, I usually frame them myself, but that is clients decision. All it takes is a photo sent. I can take from photo. An original oil painting has something a photo does not!! and lasts atleast beyond my lifetime; so they become heirlooms. And their value goes up. Interested? call Mark on 07879522757.
NOTE: Artist has complete discretion over prices of works of Intellectual property, they have copyright which does not need to be endorsed by a solicitor. Prices or values of any works may adjust again at Artist' complete discretion. At the moment most of my work is NFS because I always maintain a 'collection' to show at any exhibition.
PLANS to do an oil painting of a Welsh landscape (love the country only perused it once so far.) I have needed to come out of my area for a long time now, as far as my oil painting goes anyhow. I may have found an alternative place to paint now.
