Watching the World Go By

It was done on paper with acrylic paint.
I tried to do it with sponge dabbing within the outline.
Sponge art is very fast and easy to do and if you want to try a mural
it should turn out quite nice.

I am almost tempted to try that my self since
I have walls in my sons' room that require painting .

But then maybe I should just wait till the urge leaves.
Sometimes things done on impulse will take years to finish lol

But then I did do murals on canvas for the drama props.
They were finished, but then this is something you could roll up if you did not like it.

What is good about painting murals on canvass is that they do not damage the wall and provide for more insulation in winter.

I like the painting. Sponge art sounds fascinating, but I hope you can control the urge to try it on your sons' room.

Would your son like a mural on his wall? If so, go for it!

Wonderful painting! Love the sponge technique. I've never done a mural and I think it would take me ages to finish one. :)

I remember when I was a child my Father painting a wall then using a cloth to make swirling patterns on it - he started a trend in our neighbourhood! LOL

Love your painting - it reminds me of Roman murals.

Jen my son got married so its my room now lol

Lisa No it doesn't take long. It depends on what you want to do but big brushes work wonders.:)

Akelamalu My house has sponge painting I think in my bathrooms. I can never be sure because it has more than one color.
They sell rollers which could do the same job easily.

Dave : Thanks :)
