Large Disney Playroom

Hi folks, I've been beavering away this year and during the spring I painted this rather large playroom mural for the family of the well known premier league footballer, Charlie Austin (Southampton), featuring many of the their favourite Disney scenes and characters. I also added a version of the real Disney Castle that's at the Magic Kingdom, Disneyworld, Florida, complete with firework display. This was an epic commission that took 45 days to complete, I hope you enjoy the little video that tries to capture the artwork as best I could. Hope you like it as much as I do, and as Charlie does!

New mural added to website - Woodland fantasy scene in School Library

Hiya, I've been working hard this evening to get this mural I painted last year up on to the Sacredart Murals website. There's always so much to do, resizing and optimising images, adding all the wording and all the extra stuff that you need to do in order to be found on t'internet. So here it is, ready to pop into your field of view with just one click:

Pieced together this composite image to work from...

..with the job of painting this for real to come . Looking forward to it.
This image is a Photoshopped amalgamation of Disney and Disney style artwork I found on the internet, with some "landscaping" to alter the composition  and painting over the top to make it lighter and brighter than the original version. I'll be using it as a guide image when I paint this whole thing as a mural in a baby's nursery, in the new year. The individual components of this image we're obviously not therefore painted by me, I can't take credit for that, but the reworking is analogous to making a new song out of digital samples. It is just a guide, no more, so I hope no one is offended, particularly the original artists whose names and whereabouts I don't know!

New website content

There are some updated pages been added to the Sacredart Murals website, with bigger, better quality images and some entirely new never before seen murals. Two of these have been heavily influenced by Mr. Disney, such is the world we live in, and there are others on the Mural Gallery that I'm sure a lot of people haven't seen, so please take a peek, it's free (and looks perty ;)
