|The MuralAct is about transformation
|This page follows the MuralAct process through
|Typically The MuralAct begins with a wall. The citizens of the Town of Slave Lake elected to cover this wall with mural art.|
|A design was selected based on the boreal forest and nearby Lesser Slave Lake.|
|The picture is blocked in with colours complementary to those intended for the finished picture; red substitutes for green, blue for orange etc. This allows us to get a sense of proportion quickly and the underpaint will add richness to the colour of the finished mural.|
|The composition is refined and naturalistic colour is introduced in the sky, lake and foliage. We begin to adapt the composition to fit with an unforeseen element of the street; the curve of the curb is followed by the curve of the lakeshore in the picture.|
|Our technique of painting with rollers or brushes at the end of long poles, enlarging the design by eye rather than projecting, allows us to make adjustments on site.|
|The design adapted to the street leads the viewer's eye comfortably into the illusionary space.|
|The above mural, "Boreal Forest"
took about a week to paint with optimum
conditions and well prepared wall.
Costs vary according to:
- accessibility of the wall
- equipment required such as scaffolding
