Now the design is all finished, I can start drawing on the canvas! First I blackened out in behind the blinds with a dark tape to imitate the window surround of the office where this mural will be placed.

In order to get the first lines drawn, I had to measure up the distances (scaled off my design) then make sure everything is level on the blinds. It’s amazing how long it takes to get all those metres of drawing lines dead straight and connecting up correctly, and then getting the masking tape on – it looks quick in this 30 second time-lapse but I can tell you it wasn’t quick! You can watch a time-lapse of the process below.

But it’s all ready now for the first layer of paint. Yay! I’ll be painting the timber window surrounds first tomorrow, and then the dark edges all around. Stay tuned for the reveal.
