View From The House On The Hill.

I started work yesterday on a mural out at Crows-An-Wra on the way to Lands End. It's a bit of a mammoth task, as i'm painting 2 dragons, 1 either side of the house! The weather has been fantastic, very sunny, but bitterly cold, so i've been up the scaffold wrapped up like bloody Scott of the Antartic! The wind has been blowing a hell of a lot, and it's so far been a hairy experience.

So far, over the 2 days i've managed to draw out the image of 1 dragon on one side of the house, with it's tail and whiskers trailing round on to the back of the house. It's been hard work climbing up and down to the different levels, and getting positioned into the best place for drawing has been a challenge! Progress has been nice and steady, and a random selection of Fugazi, Justin Warfield, Battles, The Fall, Squarepusher, The Beastie Boys, Deftones, Flying Lotus, Autechre and Pop Will Eat Itself on shuffle have been keeping my going in the freezing wind!

So on Monday (weather permitting) it's onto the other side of the house to paint the next creature. Hopefully this won't be as harsh, as the sun comes round to that side of the house from about midday. Bloody lovely view from up there, as you can see from the photo above looking out over the Cornish landscape to St. Buryan. I'm looking forward to the next stage of painting the dragon, and seeing how it takes shape! I'll keep you posted!
