Category Archives: Drawing on the Walls



Above is this week’s photo for Monochrome Madness hosted on . The theme for this first week of October is door and so I submitted the door to my home. Below is the photo in color along with a drawing for the day.




Drawing of the day above and below is just a little dressing up of a little temporary construction at my house. I see sheetrock walls and they are so easy to draw on. My grandfather had the same affliction.



Here’s a look at a mural I’ve been helping with:image image image image image image

Here’s an update on my drawing-on-closet doors project. I was going to keep the drawings just in black and white but then I decided to add a bit of blue for a pop of color. The drawings were all based on Hiroshige paintings.



Here is a picture of a sketch I did on the back of a door and below is a picture after I inked it. It’s based off of a Hiroshige painting.



Picasso's Don Quixote

This summer’s project was on a smaller scale. I always liked Picasso’s Don Quixote and so I drew the picture onto 2 pieces of wood so they can get hung up staggered once the poly is added. There is this empty space on the wall in the screened porch that just needed something.


Al Hirschfeld floor


This summer project from 3 years ago is a mural made up of drawings based on Al Hirschfeld’s work. Al Hirschfeld is one of my favorite artists and it was easy to think how to fill the space by the door that leads to a screened porch. The actual project took about the whole summer because I first sketched it out in pencil and then went over it in black Sharpie. The final step was adding a couple coats of poly so the area matched the rest of the hardwood floor.
