I began the mural on the wall to the right of the building entrance on a wet and wild Tuesday 8th of August. The air temperature was so cold the base coat took around 5 hours to dry making the whole process quite difficult.
Wednesday was quite similar but by the end of the day I had the background finished and started on the banksia.
Thursday was nice and sunny so I was able to get stuck into the more difficult part of the mural in painting the bird. Just after 4pm the wall was complete.
