More Wall Painting at Saint Annes Park Primary

So, last week I went in to Saint Annes Park Primary school in Bristol and painted a big old owl in the library and today I went back and painted a dirty great Bristol Dino on the playground wall! Here it is -

I was asked to do quite a general Bristol type beastie, so fitted a few landmarks on it - Clifton Suspension Bridge, Wills Building, Cabot Tower, Tobacco Factory, SS Great Britain, coloured houses and Westmoreland House with BC graff on it. Turned out OK despite the heavy showers and having to dive under the shelter of a tree now and then. I put balloons in the piece also, even though I'm not that keen on them murals. Ah well, tis a school mural.

Here's the original design I did for the piece. I altered the final wall painting to have a different angle on the neck so that the creature could fill the wall better. Dinosaur I loosely based the creature on is Pachycephalosaurus.

I very much like the 'dino-wee-surfing' that the SS is doing... That takes some skill!

Wow. Fantastic monster there. The urbanity monster striding forth, as it does in most cities of the world. Nice hand-drawn banner too. Something like this image, http://wahooart.com/Art.nsf/All-Popular-Artists, by French painter Fernand L├ęger, maybe effective painted large on a wall too, acknowledged as a copy of course. It can be seen at wahooart.com and a canvas print of it can be ordered from there.
