Mural for Winchester House

Share Button

A few months ago I was asked if I would paint a mural for Winchester House Care Home in Rochester Kent. My wife is a carer on one of the dementia units at the home and recommended me  to the activities team. The mural was needed to serve as a backdrop to a sensory garden for the residents at the home so I was glad to volunteer my help.

jumbleYou may recall that I posted a digital painting of how the mural would possibly look in an early post here. It was a typical spring rapeseed landscape, very typical for this part of Kent.

I can proudly announce that I’ve finished the mural!

For those of you interested in the details: The mural covered three main walls and a small archway. It took 25 hours approximately to paint and the vast majority was painted using masonry paint. I used a little acrylic mixed with masonry paint in some of the mural, especially where a richer tone was required.

I’ve posted photos of the three main walls for you to see for yourselves.

I’m working on some sketches for an outdoor mural at the moment. The finished painting will cover either one or two walls around a seating area at a nursing home. I need to plan something that is both soothing and calming to the viewer so I’ve been spending a little time looking at the rapeseed fields around Kent during the Easter break. I’ve painted this digital sketch to get going on with for now but I’m planning on doing an acrylic preliminary too. Keep an eye out for the post, and I’ll post the mural too once its been painted!
