This is a mural I did in my living room, tap to extend. The key to drawing a mural is to capture what u want to audience or people viewing your work to see.

For solid animals or objects, always work from the outside in. Outline your object first.

In a mural, always make sure you chalk out your idea first. Wall paint is permanent once dry so use ordinary sidewalk chalk to draw out what you want to paint. Always have a wet rag with u to wipe off

Chalk if you mess up. You can also paint over chalk as well so its a cool tool to use.

This is a mural I did in my room. The lines are all different sizes because I used different pressures. But I suggest using different sized brushes for a beginner because it is so much harder to draw

On a wall than on a flat surface.

Make sure you always have a drop cloth under your work space to catch any drips since paint doesn't come off carpets. A drop cloth is just fabric or plastic a painter puts around their work space.
