Saturday, May 14, 2011

Nearing the end of the mural project [ about a week to go ] and have to say it's been a lot of fun and a learning experience too. Painting on this scale is a real challenge and knowing when to detail and when not to is a constant consideration. Painting a mural of this size using an 1/8 th inch watercolor brush for much of the work takes about as long as you'd think it would !....Images posted here show the Joshua Chamberlain statue and bridge in Bangor [ civil war general and Medal of Honor recipient and 32nd Governor of Maine] Paul Bunyan statue [ rather absurd mythical giant lumberjack], Stephen King's residence in Bangor, Quoddy Head lighthouse [ easternmost point of the U.S.A and only candy striped one in Maine ]......check back for final pics in a week !
