Japanese Inspired Mural
by Alex Russell Flint
Painter in Residence Alex Russell Flint took a classic Hiroshige print, Netting Wild Geese on the Hill at Okoshi, as inspiration for this stunning mural.
Alex is a realist oil painter known for his paintings of the female form. It’s a real pleasure to see him experiment with Chalk Paint to reproduce this stunning Japanese mural on his bedroom wall.
Alex took a classic Hiroshige print, Netting Wild Geese on the Hill at Okoshi, as inspiration for this stunning mural. An original woodblock print of the image hangs above his bed on the adjoining wall.
He painted the mural with a range of colours from the Chalk Paint palette, some straight out of the tin and some mixed together.
In the rest of the bedroom, Alex echoed colours from the mural to create a cohesive look. He diluted Chalk Paint in Aubusson Blue to make a wash for the remaining bedroom walls. The bedside cabinet has been painted with Coco. To see photos of the rest of his bedroom, click here.
