The mural work that went into this remodeled area was lively to say the least. The main wall of focus was the long, 25-foot wall, onto which was designed to have attached large sweeping arcs that lit up. The primary idea of the pattern of diamonds and triangles was already picked out by the client. The subtlety of the effect of apparently weaving shapes proved to be and exceptional challenge, as while at least a dozen colors were initially mixed, I found that to get the effect, almost every shape had to be mixed slightly differnt from others. A further challenge came in finding ways to paint the hard, clean edges on each one. At the end I calculated that on this wall alone I painted over two miles of linear edges. One item of question in this project was the roughly 4- x 5-foot concrete piller in the middle of everything. My solution was to borrow from an image of a faceted diamond, and on the two larger sides of the pillar I painted this diamond using colors that were "refracted"/seen beyond the pillar in the room behind. I think the impression of looking through this colored diamond gave some lively depth to offset the relatively flat main wall.
From the opposite side of the diamond you see the common kitchen area behind. The one colorful wall was requested to be a 10-step value range of blue in the V-pattern you see. Here and elsewhere on this project I mixed 10-steps of color in as equal steps as possible from one end to the other.
Also, everywhere throughout this project were ceiling soffits, as the ceilings in each room were of slightly different heights, and were painted to reflect the same colors and shapes painted elsewhere around each room.
