Redlands Tree Mural

I am officially back in Cali on Christmas break...although it's not really a break...which is good because  the art-making should never stop! I was recently commissioned to paint a mural at a church in Redlands, CA. After painting in Photoshop for the past 4 months, I was excited to take on the project and paint BIG with real paint and brushes.

The wall was approximately 8.5 feet by 12.5 feet. The client gave me reference images of a park-like avenue lined with trees, so I did a few sketches and then a color study of my own vision. I used Nova Color Cadmium Red Medium, Cadmium Yellow Light, Ultramarine Blue, Ivory Black and Titanium White.

Here are a few pics of my process:
