Looking back on some of my earlier posts I just couldn’t believe how amateurish they look so I am on a quest to do some updating. I started my blog out on the concept of
“Faux painting ideas” and a “Hand painted mural”
This color study of a landscape served me twice, not only did I paint the mural from the study but I actually sold the study for a kitchen back splash
Faux painting ideas
go far beyond the typical color wash that most have familiarized themselves with. There is a whole variety of other decorative painting techniques that can add to the decor of a room, but with this post I am going to focus on murals. There are many different styles and techniques and it can be a bit overwhelming for most home owners to go through trying to find that right artist for the commision.
It is important to find an artist that is the right fit for you and your work, myself, I prefer to meet the client for a first consultation to find out if they have a preference as to what kind of look or feel they wish to accomplish. Usually an artist can do a rendering from your thoughts and ideas of what interests you, which would determine the style of the mural. With so many styles and techniques to choose from its up to the artist to get you going in the right direction and if an interior designer is involved that even makes the process a little easier for the artist.
Interior designers have the experience and training to communicate their visions of the final outcome of a rooms decor and are a great addition to a team of craftsman and artists, they especially know how to communicate color to other trades so as not to overwhelm the client in what could be a difficult decision.
On the other hand an artist should be able to communicate with the client well enough and be able to gather enough information to not to involve a designer if the client so chooses, which brings me back to my first point in choosing the right kind of artist.
I have a questionaire that has 5 very important questions that I believe should be asked of any artist wheather they just do the basic wall glazing or are into all aspects of faux because every professional artist will know the answers to such questions, after all these are the basics and as we all know in life you must learn the basics to anything that you choose in order to advance to a professional level.
