I loosely sketched the possible window variations and then separately sketched the specifications requested for the mural.
The brief was for a view of Aldeburgh beach, with the beautiful pastel houses along the front, big fluffy white clouds, big crashing waves, and a big boat in the foreground.
These working sketches were very small 5"x 4" and were intended only as guide, allowing scope for possible changes and to get a feel of which items to include or perhaps more importantly what not to.
I drew a number of different styles and then carefully cut around each one. These could then be laid over the sketch of the beach.

Firstly I wanted to give a choice of different window options. Some quite rustic with ropes and netting, (fitting for a seaside mural) or peeling plaster and others with window bars, curtains and poles.

Be back soon with some more updates.
