Owen's Mural

Doing a marine theme for my friend Kaye. Her son Owen's birthday is in October (he will be 9). This is his birthday present.

DAY 1: Chalked out the sketches first. The dark blue made it super easy to see. Owen wanted a hammerhead shark, sting ray, sea turtle, Morey eel, coral, puffer fish, clown fish in anemone, sea snakes, and jellyfish, I added the octopus. The room has great wall space to work with and high ceilings. You can see today's progress. I wanted the shark life size. I really like the effect. His bed will be just below it.

The sting ray and coral are above his desk.

DAY 2: Finished! There are sun spots in some of the photos.
