Tide Line and Shells mural renovation

The local area of the bathroom mural is echoed in the interior design

Original sand and shells mural has damp damage to one wall corner at right of window blind:  drip lines are seen behind paint.

Damage to stencil shells meant complete renovation.

Marking out basic sand lines with brush, using photos of original painting: colour dried darker than intended so was ‘knocked back’ with more sponged layers

The finished effect I used several applications of lighter and darker coloured cream and beige applied with a real reef sponge, for natural effect.  Sections ‘mark out’ lines were painted out completely.

Similar ideas with beach tide mark designs and shells can be commissioned at ameliajhoskins@gmail.com 

I never repeat a mural, but have many beach photos to use as references and with many shell designs.
