Dome Ceiling Mural







nmrwmural 1


A domed shape ceiling is little harder to paint than normal flat ceiling, specially when you are dealing with a color gradient. I prepared 4 different blue paints (dark, medium, light, and very light). Dark blue is used for the center (top) and very light blue is for the horizon (bottom).

Palmetto trees are very common around this area and my client asked me to paint a couple of them as well as some small creatures such as butterflies, frogs, geckos, and birds. Because of the height of the ceiling, I had to paint these creatures bigger. I also painted two different size palmetto trees juxtaposing each other. By painting them in different sizes, it create a depth of field.

On other side of the mural, I painted a nesting egret with chicks and a couple of cardinals. I also painted a few birdhouses, carolina wrens, blue birds, and their beloved pet cat "Peanut".

At the center of the ceiling, I painted a large flying wood stork.
