School Mural Painter
For this Sydney school, after the initial briefing I then created a rough mural concept illustration. This was the first visual step for the overall mural painting direction.
If you like you can view my folio of mural paintings on my website showcase page for my other mural work.
Concept Illustration of the Mural
Back to the Sydney school mural. The mural concept is a vital starting point. The below example is one for a Sydney school mural I was working on. Its shows the colours, imagery and the composition of the suggested mural direction.
This is just the starting point of the mural process to see where things will fit within the specified mural area with consideration of the mural design brief. After this first showing, I then gather feedback and make any modifications if required. Normally it is all good to go as the direction is outlined within the initial design brief for the mural.
Mural illustration to clarify the direction
I do these rough illustrations to help clarify with the client in the direction the mural is going and we can discuss specifics at this point of the process as well.
For the rough sketch what I will do is get a photo of the wall for the mural or sometimes just the basic size and shape of the wall and start sketching up the idea on my iPad Pro using Procreate (good illustration software). Above you can see I have done the drawing on top of the photo of the wall.
Taking the next step as a street artist
After this, if all is good I can go on and start to do the illustration for the mural that will best represent the final look of the mural. This is when I add more details to the mural illustration before having another review with the client.
