Barrier Reef

The owner of this pool had a scuba diving hobby, and so naturally requested this mural of tropical fish and corals. It had to be painted on existing timber paneled walls, previously painted in a plain grey gloss, so the bright colours of the reef inhabitants brought the whole room to life and gentle uplighters at night add to the magic. Because of the gloss paint background, I couldn’t work with emulsions, so I used Sadolin Swedish exterior wood paints, available in many colours and which, although water based, are extremely tough. It was recommended to the client that the whole thing be sealed with an industrial sealant.
