LEARJET MURAL

LEARJET MURAL Learjet

Look at the tiny light switch on the left to get an idea of the size of this mural.  This jet was photographed while it was on the ground from a high vantage point to get the angle, then superimposed with a few tricks for realism, over some clouds I photographed on a rather stormy trip I took to Albuquerque.   This mural was done for a private charter company in Phoenix.

Below is the mural half way done with the photographs I took of the jet all over near the stuff I was painting.  Painting metal is especially tricky.  The paint needs to be blended perfectly, and the resources are very important.  Think of putting a puzzle together.  The each puzzle piece is important, and you do not get a painting of a jet, or whatever the metal object is, until the pieces are all fitted together precisely.  And forget what the subject is, just paint the shapes colors and values.   “It’s all just tricks!”DSC01957.JPG
