The Bridgetown scene was also on also on a stage - actually on a split sliding screen joined down the tree. It had a couple of 'sawn-off' branches attached that acted as handle to open it, and there was a large blackboard behind it.
Of course I realize they take practically forever to finish.
Actually that is not the case - I prefer doing murals as they are so quick. The Armadale one took 15 hours. I started at 7am and finished at 10pm. A lot of it is done with rollers, and very large brushes, with finer detail done with smaller ones of course.
The Manjimup one in this post took somewhat longer, 72 hours spread out over a week or so. I lived nearby so put a lot of fine detail - lots of animals and birds etc - small of course and a sort of 'challenge' to find them all. The Narrogin one took 6 hours.
Most of the small pantings in the earlier posts took at least twice as long over many months, as it was confined to a couple of hours here and there.
The third image in this post shows the pallars in a nearlier one used in a different way, for a different porgram. Note the 3D elements. Some of the steps are painted and some are bricks, the rope is attached and the foot on the step and the lower part of the gown is made of polystyrene and cardboard.
The fourth images is just some of the stadium stage sets that I have done - some involving paintings too.
By professional, I meant a professional artist.. If memory serves me correctly, you said you were an architect by trade ??
Neither actually - until I retired two years ago I worked in various clerical jobs for the local electricty utility (43 years). The last 10 years I was website manger and used TFP animation to create some web applications - I may have linked these before in an earlier post. www.synergy.net.au/renovator
