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

Close-Up Shots of my Grapefruit Mural in Clearwater, Florida

Here are two close-up shots of my progress. It was 84 degrees at my back today; the sun heats up the walls like a hotplate, and the paint dries almost on contact. Despite all, I love what I do! :D

Paint dries within seconds. One has to be accurate with one's strokes!

Starting to shape up. Still a lot of work to do!

I'll post more images tomorrow. Thank you for your interest and support! :D
