Victory Vintage wall 1

I'm currently painting a mural on the back of Victory Vintage Home in Decatur, Georgia. And I'm using the illustrations from the previously uploaded 1956 Better Homes & Garden Decorating Book as my subject.

 

It's been an interesting thing to duplicate large up on a wall what was originally meant to be viewed in a smaller scale, in a book. The images so far transpire really well. Bold lines and color help.

 

I'm having fun with it so far. I hope to be finished soon, but with all the hoohah during the Holidays, it's rather difficult to find the time to paint.
