In Part 2 of Giant Mural Commission by Winston Torr, I had wallpapered a 4.5 x 3.5 meter, about 4 x 5 yard, full of newspaper in preparation to draw on. Once that was done, another wash of wall paper tapestry binder solution was applied, and let dry for many days.
As explained in Part 1, I just a received this Giant Commission from Fellini Gallery to do a huge Mural measuring 4.5 x 3.5 meters, about 4 x 5 yards, for their Grand Opening titled “I remember” in Kreuzberg – Berlin, Germany scheduled for early September 2011.
This 3rd post shows a progress of the figures being drawn onto the wall. This is the first time I am using a telescope drawing mechanism I put together myself to create lines and shaping the figures. After a day of this my head was spinning with all the excitement, exhaustion, and eagerness to start again the next day!
How to make a telescope drawing mechanism:
Take a stick of a broom or even a paint roller pole and tape a paint brush to the tip.
You can also attach a marker, pencil, or whatever. I love working with my giant pencil!
It was pretty challenging in the beginning to be steady and fluid at the same time while drawing with paint. Using this telescope stick really made a difference in working large scale. Being spontaneous has been one of my art trade, as my drawings on newspaper are. I felt I was in another World throughout the whole process. I was on PlanetTORR!…ha!
Noted in the Part 2, I am documenting the whole process on Video so that is will be posted on Part 4.
Stay tuned, feel the enthrallment. any comment or question will be appreciated and answered!
