Working with the client

We enjoyed working over several months with this client to achieve this specially commissioned Peony and Iris mural.  A lot of planning went into working out the exact composition required and all the elements to be included.  The client wanted to include her favourite varieties of flowers as well as butterflies that she noticed locally.  We provided her with a number of drawings to get everything just right!

Painting the mural

The exciting part of the process is the hand decorating which is a lengthy process – starting with the scaling up of the composition and making adjustments so it works when enlarged.  The colours are mixed to the chosen shades followed by the first coats of the painting.  There are many layers to build up to achieve the intensity of colour required and the richness of the final piece.  The resulting mural has a timeless quality reminiscent of a beautiful fabric or tapestry.

Planning and research

As always we do a lot of research to gather the visual information required and lots of colour notes are made.  All along we keep in touch with the client to check we are on the right path!  We also provide colour swatches of our glaze colours to ensure that they meet the client’s expectations. Working with the colour choices is a lovely part of the process as it starts to bring the mural to life
