A little more info about this mural:
For this bedroom in a home in central London, The client asked me to create different scenes from Harry Potter for their two boys, featuring a panorama of Hogwarts at night, a colourful twilight scene of Diagon Alley, and a bright, daytime Quidditch match. There was also a space to add in the Great Hall in Hogwarts, with floating candles. The logistics included painting a fitted wardrobe, some fitted bunk beds, two doors and frames and negotiating three large windows. The budget was fixed and so was the amount of time available to do the work, which was quite short so I was under quite intense time pressure while painting. The work was completed exactly on schedule and the clients, and especially her two boys, were absolutely thrilled with the result. Like all of my completed murals, it was finished off with a coat of barely visible flat matte varnish and, because it's a whole room, once again there are lots of photos. I hope you like them
