with client, and sign it. OR submit rough color sketches based on client
input (at an hourly rate.) Rough sketches are an integral part of the
design process. It is at this stage that the idea gets developed into a
vibrant picture that accurately reflects the client’s goals, if done with

Based on client
input, make any changes to rough sketches, or submit new ones, also at an
Sign contract with
final price quote; receive initial payment (usually 1/4 - 1/2 of total
price, depending on project size).
Submit final drawing (optional).
Set up scaffolding.
Clean wall; project & trace image onto it (at night, or otherwise in
the dark). Access to electricity is needed.
Mix colors on site
(a small storage room/area is necessary for this, and access to water),
and paint mural. I usually work
with one assistant, and volunteers help during the early stages.
