Outer Space Mural

A while back, I painted a mural in my kids room.  It was my first attempt at a wall mural and it was lots of fun.


I started by drawing a grid of the wall and sketching out my ideas.  This helped me to get a basic idea of scale for the planets.  I measured out a few key distances and then I mostly just free-handed the whole thing.  I used samples of several different colors of paint and blended the together as I needed.  And I definitely let my kids leave hand prints in the corner as a final touch :)

Here is a little video showing the process.  Enjoy!
