Evolution of a Mural I have my own way of working as do all artists, but mine is really a little different... After I have a sketch the clients love I then start work on the wall. I do not sketch anything in pencil on the wall before I start. I do all mural placement using painter's tape. I then do everything using my paintbrush without sketching. My brush shows me the way... Clients are always surprised and fascinated watching my process, so I thought I'd put my system on our web page. All my work is done freehand, never traced. I am old school!
