This is not my original artwork- I saw this mural online and fell in love with it. Here's the link- http://www.flickr.com/photos/mstultz/1450116155/in/pool-modernnursery
I simplified it a little by not outlining it in a contrasting color. It was hard enough to paint it on our plaster walls. I free-hand sketched it, then used latex wall paint to paint it on. It took like five different work sessions to complete. I did it over the course of a week. I am quite happy with how it turned out. I just have to fill in the bird's eye and it will be completely done.
