Puppet Theater Mural

I just finished working on a fun project - a 4' x 4' puppet theater that my customer has made for her two twin nieces. They asked me to fun, whimsical, yet realistic flowers. They brought the piece to me already painted the same yellow as the girl's bedroom (you can see it through the opening in the pictures below) I suggested painting it over so instead of blending into the walls, it would stand out. I chose to do background colors of blue and green as a backdrop for the mural, blue for the sky and green for the land.

After doing the background color, I painted the clouds. Then I painted the green of the grass, leaves, and flower stems. The flowers and butterfly's were last.
