NHS SUPERHEROES @ ACANTEEN CHELMSFORD.

BLOG POST : FIVE / We love ya NHS!

Recently I was commissioned by ACANTEEN to create a mural to celebrate our NHS. I was super happy to get involved with the project as it would be the biggest scale I have EVER worked with yet .Thankfully I knew what I wanted to do straight away so did not waste any time (which i had a lot of) and began with my huge task. After two and a half long weeks , multiple (family) assistants and many paint stained clothes I was finished.


I wanted the concept itself to show a sense unity and power as well as being fun, detailed and intriguing to look at - so all those people waiting for their coffees can be entertained.


An element that I really loved about this piece was the rainbow that intertwined through my characters. As my colour palette is strictly pastels the bright primary colours really brought it to life. After finishing the time consuming task of painting a small ( but long ) rainbow , I had a huge sigh of relief and it was almost like i had seen with fresh eyes.


( which is good after spending two and half weeks staring at the same illustration)


BIG LOVE TO THE NHS AND ACANTEEN FOR LETTING ME PAINT ALL OVER THIER RESTAURANT!
