Independent Mural Painted Sideways

Its a 40 foot tall wall starting from the reception area on the 2nd floor, and looking up to the skylight windows. The elongated, stylized and gilded design of the tower of Independence Hall, using a vivid color palette, will be a focal point.

The computer was indispensable for painting sideways. I gridded the sketch and canvas, and drew the image freehand... referring to a landscape or sideways view of the sketch on my laptop, taped to the top of a ladder.As I progressed with the painting, I took photographs of the work in progress, and was then able to flip them right side up on the computer to see how it would look.
