This was a fun project at a Junior School called Park Wood in Rainham. It was quite a dated building, built in the 1970's. The walls were all plain brick and quite drab looking as you walked towards the main entrance so the new headmaster wanted to brighten it up and make a better impression on visitors, staff and pupils.
This was the school before painting
We settled on a theme of woodland but showing how it changes through the seasons. In all there were 8 walls of various sizes that were painted. I spent two days cleaning and preparing the walls, then a further 12 days painting the murals. With such a short time to paint the murals (each one took little more than a day to complete) I had to work fast and really slap the paint on, so the emphasis was on impression rather than detail. It also really helped by the September weather wich remained gloriously sunny for the two and a half weeks I was there. The day after I finished it poured down!
These are the finished murals that move through the seasons from right to left on the building
