From my Vancouver Island painting studio in Youbou, BC, this mural depiction of ancient China was created on panels that would ultimately be installed in Edmonton's Chinatown. Red oxide and teal have been painted in as blocks of colour to start the mural.
The start of Along the River During the Qingming Festival mural is outlined on panels. One of my favourite times is the start of a mural, when there's just a blank white canvas and the mural sketch.
