Making of the LittleThaiPlace Mural

BannerArtistWebsitesBlack468x60

Working on painting the mural at Little Thai Place at the  Shelbourne Plaza in Victoria was a real treat…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My aim on this mural project was to give the impression that you are actually walking into a painting and not simply looking at a painting.  If I may say so myself, I believe that I managed to accomplish  this.

Enjoy the before, during and completed mural photo’s and descriptions below.

     As you can see in the images above I have a blank canvas to work with. The old LittleThaiPlace was completely gutted and renovated to make it a truly unique dining experience that it is today.  The authentic Thai food is to die for and the mural is a visual feast for the eyes and senses. For all you Thai food lovers out there, I recommend you come and visit sometimes soon:)

If you have not viewed the video yet you can have a look here or go to my video page.

The following images below will give you a good idea on the progression of the mural…

Considering the 1 month deadline in which I had to complete the mural work in preparation of the opening date for the LittleThaiPlace, I had to really make sure that I approached the job in the most productive manner possible.  Since I had to paint every square inch of the  restaurant, I decided doing all the texture painting first would be the best approach. I could then follow up with all the illustrating as it would become the main features of the mural and allow me to focus without too many distractions.

The wall texture is starting to take shape one brush stroke at a time!

The photo above will be where the counter top will eventually be installed.

Here you can see the opposing wall in the LittleThaiPlace restaurant. Part of the walls will be painted with a sky scene and the remainder will be covered by shelves and cabinets. Notice the vent pipe on the ceiling, it will also get painted to look old and rusty.

This is the front facing wall looking into the kitchen area. Above a chalkboard was painted giving the illusion that it is actually hanging from the wall. The rustic look of the mural is really starting to take shape.

A beautifully crafted main entrance divider has been installed and painted. An existing sand blasted glass has been salvaged during the early demolition phase of the LittleThaiPlace and has yet to be installed on the bottom half of the divider.

Most of all the walls in the Little Thai Place have been painted, now time to paint the scenes.

The main entrance walls will be a sky blending in with faint view of  mountain tops, giving the impression that

you are high up looking out onto the distant landscape.

It is time now to start working on the main wall…The intent is of giving the viewer a look onto the Thai landscape overlooking the rice fields and farm lands. As you will see on the completed wall, I believe that I managed to achieve this task.

Here I am working on the sky and the landscape. I also added a ledge surrounding all the windows to help in creating the illusion you are looking out onto the landscape. This will also help create more depth to the mural.
