I haven't posted before, so bear with me here.
A little while ago I painted a computer room for a friend of mine. She wanted something unique for her kids, so we decided to make the room look like it was all under water! It took most of the summer, but it turned out really cool. I'm pretty proud of it.
The ceiling (which I wish I had pictures of!) is supposed to look like you're underwater looking up so I put light reflections on blue water. Then all four walls are covered with sea life. The windows and closet are painted to look like they have bolted frames, like a submarine.
Had pictures of the whole wall somewhere, but I seem to have misplaced them.
I'd love to hear comments!
The whales are supposed to look far off. Pretty proud of the light streaks
Puffer fish looking startled. I did the sand all around the base boards of the room, so it's pretty shallow water I guess.
Lionfish just above the window.
This is kind of a bad angle, but you get the idea. They're right underneath the window.
Butterfly or Angel fish. I'm not sure which, I just liked the shape.
The shark above the closet. Since he's supposed to be near the surface, I put his reflection as if his fin was sticking through the water.
The turtle is pretty close to being life size. Takes up quite a bit of room on the wall and took a long time to do, but I really think of him as the centerpiece.
The octopus above the door.
This is supposed to be a big coral structure in the corner. The moray sticking his head out with a little fish eating the leftovers.
Stingray swimming up the wall.
A sponge coral. I tried to put little things like this throughout the room, something other than just fish.
Starfish and the domino fish just below the puffer.
