NANTUCKET SEASCAPE MURAL
“By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea. You and I, you and I, oh how happy we’ll be…”
Sunshine, seagrass, sailboats, surf. The perfect subject matter for a peaceful family room mural. Especially when that was the setting for your wedding, as was the case for a Glencoe, IL family who contacted me recently to paint a Nantucket beach scene in their new family rec room.
The mural started with a small color rendering, laying out all of the details clearly.
Once the layout was approved, all of the elements were painted on the wall in stages…
Each day more details were added, creating a visual story for the mural.
Lots of fun details like families playing in the surf, Nantucket’s famous “rainbow fleet”, sea grasses, wild roses and one of Nantucket’s iconic lighthouses were added to give the mural character and personality.
The finished mural was 22′ wide by 7′ tall. This was such a fun project for a wonderful family! I hope they enjoy it for years to come!!
