Caribbean Pirate Mural - on a Pirate Ship

Location - Belgravia - London

Everyone loves pirates, and Pirate Murals are very popular! This colourful caribbean pirate mural was painted in a tiny space, to a very tight deadline (eight days), in a very awkwardly angled area high up in a playroom. Hard to explain but you might see what I mean when you see these photos. I would loved to have had more time to work on this mural but alas, twas not to be. When I asked the two children whether they wanted the pirate to be friendly or scary, they both emphatically agreed - SCARY!

A large ship's steering wheel was later added to this pirate mural, positioned at the top of the green stand.
The wall was reinforced behind before the plasterboard was applied, to allow for the extra weight.
The skirting board was painted to match the floor decking, which was also added later.
