Equine Wall Mural
 
Okay so I'm yet again redesigning my bedroom, or hoping to at least. I've decided that on each of the 4 walls I want a differant horse mural. For example, 1 wall can have a mare and foal, 1 wall a few horses at a racetrack, 1 wall could have a herd galloping, jumping events, cross-country. etc. I will be somehow drawing it myself on the wall and then painting it myself. Now I don't have an amazing skill with drawing.

Any ideas on how tomake this possible? How should I draw an image on a huge wall, how do I paint it properly?

Also if any super artistic people who draw amazingly wanna do some designs I'd love you forever and ever and ever.

I'd draw it out first then paint.

Also, if you have access to an Overhead Projector (lol, my school still uses them. Dunno about you), you can project your image onto the wall then trace it. It works excellently!

That was exactly what I was going to recommend.
Great minds think alike, and all that.... :wink:

i actually did something like that once azarni in an art class where we had a grid and put up a big piece of paper then projected the gird onto the paper, drew a grid over the pic and then walla, you fill it in. sadly I do not have a projector. I was thinking doing the grid thing but drawing a grid over the photo first, then counting the squares and stuff and putting a grid on the wall before copying it over. do you think it'll work?

and does anyone have any steller images?

That is another great way to enlarge an image (the grid) Like the other ppl have stated, draw it out first then paint it. Sounds like a great project... good luck! Don't forget to post pics of the final results!! ;)

Sounds wonderful , cant wait to see the finished product. I wanted to paint some kind of mural on my daughters walll but had no idea how to get started with it. I ended up buying a 3 piece mural that I just hung on the wall of horse heads. I bought them from LTD. and they were perfect for a childs room.
Your idea sounds much better though.

nice RadHenry. I considered doing that but I wanted a for real change. Plus in winter I have a lot of excess energy and am super restless because we get a lot of snow and for some reason winter in itself unsettles me. I dunno why, I'm just super weird. Having a project cams me.
