Mural Painting in Peru
Three full days later, some latex paint and a trillion brush strokes and my first mural is complete. I’ve been painting a wall at Kokopelli Hostel in Cusco for free accommodation, but I probably would have done it for free. What an experience! And for me, I feel a massive achievement. It feels like when I finished the Loch Ness Marathon!
Below are four pics of the wall in progress and one of me being very very happy at its completion. In it, I’m holding a drawing I made in Bolivia which I based the mural on.
If I’d had more confidence in my work at the beginning of my trip, and known that hostels would put me up for free for a lick of paint I would have sought out more opportunities. As it is I’m really happy with the progress I’ve made in my drawing and painting skills and to have done this mural is a really exciting milestone.
