Afraid it was a cheat due to timescale and working around tradies so they were plotted, vinyl stencils and sprayed on using the water based Montana paints.
You totally smashed it with those gouache paintings!
Loving the designs and colours.
I remember back at college we used to spend a lot of time working with gouache with the aim of getting it perfectly flat.
Looking back it was like something out of The Karate Kid.

@Scotty - The wall still looks awesome. At least there's the hand in there somewhere with the spraypaint, way better than just using vinyl.
I think the trick is just getting the right consistency with the gouache. I find it actually needs quite a bit of water added to it, and a pretty wet brush to work with. I tried to watch a tutorial, but the guy was using it straight from the tube with absolutely no water, and it confused me.

::@scotty must be awesome to see your work realised at that scale!::
Yep mate. It's a buzz alright. :)
The company I work with are no strangers to large scale and are what you'd call "real artists".
Check this puppy out.
Imagine the white page syndrome on this scale.
