WE have established a theme or basic direction, then I look at the room, the furniture, the plans and I offer ideas. You provide feedback and let me know if I am on the right track. Once we have the major concepts worked out, I make a sketch of the best idea(s) and give you a price for the mural based on the concept(s). At this point I often start a list of the details the client wants to have included in the mural (People, plants, animals, colors etc.) Many of the smallest details work their way in spontaneously when I am actually painting..
