I nanny for a *nearly* 2 year old boy, who LOVES Winnie the Pooh, but, not the Disney versions, (Which I don't think he has ever even watched!) He loves the original stories and drawings. So, as it is his Birthday coming up soon (Two months!) I offered to paint his play room, as all the walls were white and bare. No fun for a kiddie!
Of course, we all decided on a Winnie the Pooh theme.
I chose an illustration from the story 'Tiggers Don't Climb Trees' and started from there. I wanted all the characters in, so I added owl on a branch of the tree, and on the wall on the other side of the door, I added Rabbit from, oh, the story has escaped me! Sorry! Basically, Rabbit finds a note from Christopher Robin on his door.
The little boy was so good when I was painting in his room, knowing not too come to close, and re-assuringly pointing at the Characters and telling me who they were! Phew!
He loves his new playroom, and will always randomly point and say 'Christopher Robin!' or, 'Pooh Bear!' Like its the first time he has seen them, and has no idea how they got there Cheesy

This is the original:

I realised a few minutes after painting Rabbit, than he is actually a really pale sandy brown. Gah! At least the little boy knew it was A rabbit, he just thought it was Peter Rabbit!!

I'd love to know what you think, and I would love to hear any comments or advice!!

Buzzy bees!

Hey, thats better!

Coming together!

I've finished it now, so when I am there next, (monday) I will be able to take actual finished pictures =0
Its all done! The photos are a little awkward, as they had put all the furniture back in by the tim eI got around to taking photographs! But hopefully you get the idea Wink

Hope you like!

How sweet! I grew up reading the stories, not watching the movie too. Your mural looks adorable so far. I can't wait to see it completed!

Thanks for the comments everyone! I have had such an amazing time painting it, it did take a while, but I love doing projects like this, so it was definatley a labor of love, and the look on the little boys face is payment enough =D
