And we’re off! Today was a preparation day:
Pack the car with every imaginable painting list item, including hair dryer (spot drying) and expandable laundry basket (used to belong to children, but now serves as a frame for my trash can, so handy!)
Clean the wall
Tape off the areas
Add one coat of primer
Add a second coat of tinted primer. This serves as an underpainting. For those who are unfamiliar with the painting process, an underpainting is a base color added as a first color for the painting. It adds cohesiveness from a color point of view to a painting. I added a little Venezuelan Sea to the white primer for a soft, warm blue.
More updates on Wednesday, when the design gets added and the colors begin!
