Wonder Works Mural - Individual Seat backs/Shirts - Patterns and Motifs

Tricky mixing plaids and stripes? Try 25 different patterns, in all different colors. Here are most of the patterns and colors I've used on the seat backs/shirt shapes for the Audience Mural I am painting at Wonder Works Children's Museum in Oak Park, IL.First, I painted all the background colors. In most cases, I needed to do numerous coats to get the saturated color I desired. Now I am painting various patterns and motifs on them using brushes ranging from size 0 liners to 1" flats. I wish the colors were more true to life but as there are no windows in the theater, I have no natural light. You'll just have to come and see it in person! :)
