So I just bought a house and the walls are dreadful. Full of brown brown and peach brown. Blech. I am not a fan of non-colour colours. So before I paint them red and yellow, I decided to do a mural.
I've always been a fan of Pop art and comic book art. With that in mind I set out to google and ended up with Lichtenstein's explosion. Got out my trusty overhead and got to work.

great job Smiley

It wasn't entirely clear what you plan on doing with the red & yellow paint, but I would NOT paint over that mural!
Beautiful colourful walls with a feature wall that really "pops" Smiley

Lol, I plan on painting the rest of the room yellow and another room red to tie into the mural.

I cut a sponge into circles and just dotted them on.
