I took a photo of the mural into a graphics program,redrew it as basic shapes,then printed it out on a transparency for overhead projectors,which I borrowed from my teacher sister..Projecting it on the wall,I traced out the shapes with pencil. I masked of around it,and began painting.I used arcylic paints from the local craft . brushed almost all,except for some light airbrushing of the sky,with a very cheap airbrush.
Pans shadow was done the same way,drawn in the computer,printedit full size onto several sheets of photo paper, then cut out the shape with a razor to make a stencil. To paint it, I used some glazing compund and adrop of black and pink paint (Shadows have a purple hint to them) I used a paint roller with very little paint on it,and rooled over it.Worked perfect!
