Mural Typography Design Quote
Mural Typography Design Quote ‘The Sky is Everything is taken from a book of Art quotes ‘Art is the Highest Form of Hope’ I have wanted to experiment with painting a mural for some time. I have been working on illustrating type and experimenting with different letterforms.
The quote started as a sketch idea in my Moleskine sketchbook that was worked on a developed in the illustrated type design. It was then sketched on to a white wall before being painted by hand in black acrylic paint.
I used a small tip bristle brush to cover the large areas of the quote and using a smaller paintbrush to work on the edges of the quote to keep the line edges tight and crisp. I used black Stysyem3 Acrylic colour to paint the quote. I am experimenting with the different paints to find the one I would prefer working with. The System3 Acrylic paint is easy and fluid to apply and covers the wall well without the ground colour showing through behind or having to apply a second coat of paint.
