MGA Mural Project

Here is "Snail's Pace" my canvas for the mural project sample. I found this project challenging at first. We were each given a 6 x 6" section of one larger picture. The large picture was divided into 28 small sections. The challenge was to increase the size of our work to 12 x 12" and then make a realistic painting out of the section we were given keeping the same values and colours if possible. Mine became a garden with a snail, some bull rushes, mushrooms and a puddle. I will let you know how the project proceeds.The end result will be a mural for the Markham Public Library system to display on one of the library's walls.
