I finished the wall mural!

It was actually finished about a month ago, but I'm not too confident about mixing indoor lighting with photography so it took me ages getting round to taking photos. Apologies to anyone who may have been sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see the finished product, but here it is!

Right wall (please excuse my cheeky little nephew!)

Back wall

Left wall
Mr. Eel is definitely my favourite

Although I didn't see the school children's reactions, my nephew, Jack's, pointing and 'oooh'ing and fish impressions were good enough for me!

I've really enjoyed painting on such a big scale and, hopefully, I'll get the chance to do it again one day. As I completed more and more of the mural I became a lot more confident with size, spacing and the actual painting of each character. I'm much happier with the left wall and did a lot more free hand drawing rather than using the projector as I had done on the right wall and I can definitely see the progression and improvement from when I first started back in October.

Anyway, let me know what you think!
