Well, where did we leave the mural the other week? That’s right, it was white, covered in stabliser and the outlines of the old mural were just peaking through. All ready for the painting to begin. First session was on Saturday 19th May. Mid-day arrived and the guys from Positive Arts began their day!
All ages help with the painting!
Looking at original photos of the windmill to get an idea of what needs to go on the wall.
As we come to the end of day one, much progress has been made.
Sunday, the clouds were out but still local came to visit and do their bit!
Local icon Roof Dog starts to appear on the mural!
Sections start to take shape as other bits are worked on.
Clapham Film Unit are there to record the development of the mural!
Three floors of action!
A small crowd gathers! Brixton has come to take a look!
Towards the end of the day, some fire engines appear and just add to the action!
Tuesday: third day of community mural painting! The kids are ready for action!
The street comes alive on the wall.
Everyone’s busy up and down the ladders!
Drawing closer to the end of day three, the clouds add some extra drama to the Windmill mural.
Well, that how far we have got with the photos telling the story. Watch out for our next blog post updating the progress!!
