The client wanted the handwriting of William Shakespeare to be enlarged and hand painted onto the wall in the large reception area of the hotel. The hotel was being modernised so the artwork had to have a modern edge whilst still looking traditional.
Below is an image of an original document hand written by William Shakespeare (held at the British Library). This is what we worked from.
Below is the design to scale to show how the enlarged document would look over all 3 walls.
This is the finished artwork hand painted over all 3 walls. Hand painted with Dulux paint and then using a rag technique, we distressed the artwork to add an aged parchment effect.
