Mural Makeover

Jack's Room

Before the makeover!

Jack had a very long blue and yellow room! Lots of space but no distinction of areas...

The mural begins!

After painting 2 walls a rich Jay blue and the other 2 a lighter sky blue, I began to color-fade this side wall from the darker shade to the lighter blue in curved strokes to compliment shape of the moon. I painted the moon low on the wall to give the feel of 'landing on the moon.'

The fun part began with studying the Skylander figures and beginning to paint 'Tree Rex.'

I put the large bookshelf in the middle of the room to partition the bedroom space from the play area. This gave a backdrop for the Skylander mural- which Jack's parents feel he will love for now, but may not in a few years. This way- the bookshelf can be moved when they decide to re-do his room theme in the future!

Jack's dad had this retro GI Joe rocket ship in his basement under a pile of things. I spotted it and requested it as a feature in the outer space paradise I was aiming to create for his son! Passing down a piece of history! After it was secured to the wall near the moon, I painted the rocket flames below.
