Day Six, Grapefruit Mural, Clearwater, Florida: Changes

Well, the inevitable day arrived where I decided to make a change. I wasn't happy with the grapefruit segments on Panel #2 (with the curling rind), so painted over it and quickly began the detailing process anew. I think, all in all, it will end up looking more "correct".

My day today was cut short so am hoping to spend a bit more time painting tomorrow.

Before on the left; revised on the right. Even though I've just started the repair process, I think it  was a good decision to make the change.

And here are the full panels after today's short time at the walls:

Panel #1: just now starting some refinement on the segments

Still a ton of work to do, but am now more content with the segments. Stay tuned for refinement next week!

I hope you all have an excellent (and quick!) Friday tomorrow so that we can all jump into our weekends. And again, thanks for your interest. It is appreciated. :D

Day Five, Grapefruit Mural, Clearwater, Florida: Things Are Heating Up!

Today marks day 5 of my ongoing 2-panel mural here in Clearwater. With the hot spring weather firmly in place, it's becoming a little more challenging. I am satisfied thus far on my progress and will be back at the walls around 6:30am tomorrow (gotta stay ahead of the sun!).

First of two panels of my latest project, The Grapefruit Mural

More photos and an update tomorrow. Thanks for your interest! :D

Day Three: The Grapefruit Mural, Clearwater, Florida: Coming to Life

Day 3 in the lovely Florida sun. It's quite beautiful out as long as you can withstand the high temperature...in the direct sun..for hours. I happen to like it (as long as there's a breeze,) so no complaints here.

I worked on the two whole grapefruit today; one each on the two panels.

I'll probably be working on the grapefruit halves tomorrow. Lots of reshaping and defining to do with these. All in all, I'm just happy the blobs are starting to come to life!

More tomorrow...
