An Eighth Day View:
This book is a comprehensive guide to painting murals both inside and outside the home, whether it's a child's room, entryway, kitchen, or garden. Patricia Seligman begins with a brief history of this art form, with photographs of unique mural paintings throughout the world. She follows with demonstrations on how to prepare a wall surface for painting and how to select the materials for the job. Artists will learn how to choose an appropriate subject for their mural, select colors that will create the desired effect, and transfer their design to the final surface. They'll learn as they create, step-by-step, any one of the eight different murals presented--including one for a child's room, a bathroom, a study, a hallway, and a ceiling. Through these projects, artists will discover how murals can be used to create visual tricks with the eye, provide a focal point to a room, create illusion of added space, render textures and more.
