Hippo mural

This mural I painted in a bathroom of the same school as previously. I wanted to paint something happy, so I chose hippos. For the most part they seem like fat, happy, slow creatures, although they can be pretty vicious. I painted bubbles to make it more playful. Bubbles also seemt suitable for a bathroom.

Right outside the bathroom the walls were plain and white. I wanted to decorate them in some way, so I stared with asking the pupils that goes to this school what kind of animals they liked. Then I drew animals on the wall and let the pupils paint them after:

 

I was recently in the local newspaper, Totens blad, with the pupils that helped me paint, 4th and 5th grade at Totenviken school.
