Billy Merson Mural Finished!
Phew ...... after 4 sessions in all, the mural I have been painting of music hall entertainer, Billy Merson mural is finished at last! You will find it downstairs, on the landing at The Malt Cross, St James Street, Nottingham. You can actually see the scale now, with me standing next to it - it's pretty large. I am so pleased the way it has turned out. It is better than I ever imagined it would be. It was really challenging though; it's a different kettle of fish working vertical straight on to a wall, than on a flat canvas or piece of paper. I would like to think that Billy, who was from Nottingham, would be happy with his portrait. There's several videos of him on Youtube if you feel like checking him out.
