The Kings Head - Kilburn

A quiet 2 days spent in the new Kings Head on Kilburn High Road. I was asked if I could copy the logo onto a wall space at the entrance to the bar. 'No problem' I said. The manager was amazed at how accuratley I had managed to do it... I wasn't sure how I'd managed to do it myself! It did turn out alright though.

Day 33 - Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries

Compared to some of the work I have done at the nursery, this alphabet was slightly easier to do. However I needed to be quite precise with the lettering as it will be used frequently as a learning tool for the pre-school children in this room.

Day 31/32 - Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries

Making the numbers from 1-5 a little more interesting. Being a relatively small wall, accomplished this fun little rocket in only 2 days. That's the toddler room complete! Now, on to my last two walls in the pre-school room...

Day 29 - Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries

Reflections on the balloons, outlining underway. I'm liking how this is coming together. As this is Zoe's 'toddler' room, she asked that I didn't make the clown too 'scary' looking. This ones worked out fine! Zoe's happy...

Day 28 - Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries

Made a start on the clown birthday chart today. No white underpainting required, which sped up the process a little! Should get this one completed quite quickly.

Day 26/27 - Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries

Finished! 'Animal Fayre' rhyme wall complete. By far one of the most enjoyable walls to complete on this project. I'm so happy with the result and judging by the comments I have received from the staff at Monkey Puzzle. This is one of their favourites so far...

Day 25 - Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries

Started to outline, and not that far off completion. Really happy with the way this is turning out. Could so easily lose myself in detail!

Some good progress made over these two days, really happy with how it's all starting to look.
Can't wait to start outlining and breath a little life into it...

Day 22 - Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries

I went to the animal fayre, the birds and beasts were there...
Dark red walls in the teenies room require white primer/undercoat. Made a start today, positioning the characters and getting a composition that I was happy with took a while. Should maybe have prepared some rough drawings first. This ones going to look great!
