Pizza part 3

After another weekend at work in a cafe I was back to painting the walls. I had 3 days and a morning of the 4th to start and finish the last wall and add some small details to the previous ones. So it was a lot to do considering that previous walls took me 7 days to (almost) finish :P But! I took my Love with me again and when I was making the details he was, again, painting base colours and drawings straight lines and so on and so on. What a helpful creature :3

Here are the pictures:

 First sketch. The whole painting was supposed to be based on this picture. But there was no way of making it the same (and absolutely no fun!) so I've changed it. A lot ;)

 This wall colour suited the furniture so well.. But in the end both of them looked different than here.

 This time I took my music in a more convenient way than a huge laptop. And I could just concentrate on painting. I cannot imagine creating anything without any music in the background.

 My Love helping, drawing straight lines. What would I do without him? :)

 Five days left till the opening, 2 days left for me to paint. And I'm sitting and posing ;P

 Finally, got back to work. Comparing with previous weeks, when working with such a close deadline, I felt an urge to eat all the time. Chocolate mostly, Kinder Country, to be specific :3

 And sandwiches with cheese :) Made in a pizza oven. Pizza would be even better but there was no one to make it back then.

 A shelf with toys - everyone could suggest what toy should find its place there.

 This wall was more like a real painting for me, with more possibilities and giving me a lot of fun. When I painted the forest on the previous one I just used green. This green, that green, a bit of blue, a bit of brown, no invention - it was just a forest and it needed to look like 'just a forest' for normal people. But here I could change my idea every minute and it still was ok.

 Although I sometimes missed Ctrl + Z buttons ;P I always do when switching from digital to traditional painting.

 Finished furniture is more reddish than it was on the 2nd photo. The free space on my painting is where the flat screen will be.

 Shameless self promotion :)

 Finally open! Everyone loves the place!

Especially my pretty paintings :)

Those were busy 10 days of creating. I got really off my daily routine then and lost track of everything else but painting, but I liked it. I could do it more often, no problem :) Anyone wants a wall painted?

And this is a cone pizza. Will eat it every time I'm there :)
