Lucy Paints Delft

Started March 9th – Operation Vermeer Tunnel (Chico Mendes Tunnel) updates located in my blog.

Delft is in dire need of an artistic makeover due to a large number of neglected or just plain boring walls.

As many are aware, getting permission and/or funding is where the challenge lies past the vision.  Luckily, I love a challenge.  This page will be updated with more information as it arises.

Examples/Ideas – Lucy Paints Delft – Online album featuring inspirations, mockups, previous range of commissions/works.

Sun and Mist Study – Lighting is everything.  5:52 minutes of serene compositions of light and shadows; many of which would be a treat to paint in a large scale interpretation.

 

 

The value of a simple mural:

Tests and experiments are critical to my development as a painter.  Here is my test of what a landscape mural turns out like when painted quickly using leftover paint.  The color “chrome” (oddly enough) ended up being the favorite unexpected shiny hero in this one.

Normally I paint painstakingly slow with a great deal of attention focused on details and exact colors, but I was already doing that on a large project during the week so it felt great to do the opposite here.  That, my friends, is how we grow.  A simple mural also has merits.
