This is a mural I painted for my daughter's girl scout troop. They were hosting an event with a jungle theme.
The mural is about a 10 foot long piece of muslin and it took me a few weeks to finish.
Also I had to work on it in sections because I didn't have anywhere to lay it out flat and see the entire thing. I'm happy with how it turned out, alot of troops took their group pictures in of front it at the event.

This is my first time posting a project, I hope this works!

Wow, good job. Is it hard to do murals, what with scale and everything?

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy

Thank You! I've done a few big works and luckily scale hasn't been too bad (for me). I've found that if I can sketch it out first and then step back to look at it I can see if everything looks right. This mural was a crazy freehand painting the went wildly out of control : ) Murals are really fun to do they just are very time consuming!
