I was commissioned to create a mural in someone's backyard. They wanted the feeling of the mural to be very peaceful and happy, as this is a space that they spend a lot of time. We originally were going to go with a sunset ocean scene, but changed courses for a daytime beach scene. I still decided to incorporate pinks and oranges in the mural, to give the impression that it's about to be sunset as well as to give the scene a little extra depth. This was my first large scale commission, and I'm very happy with how it turned out!
