Person County/Roxboro Mural.  The mural is 8' wide by 16" high.  It's painted with exterior house paint on 4 aluminum panels.  The photo was taken with the mural on its side, the 4 panels lined up next to each other leaning against the wall.  Spaces can be seen between the panels.

Person County Mural so far.  It's not finished of course.  The top panel has only beginning shapes and zero shading yet (they were all like that at the start).  The 3 lower panels are close to done, little bits of work left here and there.  The colors and lighting appear different due to photography and where the panels are in the room. Some panels are close to the window and washed out on one side and some are in the dim light.  Any small parts that don't quite match up are due to photography.  The mural is made of four 4' x 8' panels.  So it's 8' wide and 16' high in total.

This is a color mural sketch.  It is about 6" x 12".  The mural will be about 8' x 16'.  There are a few changes I will make on the design for the mural - the store will move over to the right a little and the church will move up a little.  This improves the composition and makes a better and less cluttered background for the church steeple.  And of course everything on the mural will be more refined with more detail.
