When Showcase Dance studio in Manassas approached me about doing a Broadway-themed mural for one of their dance studios, I was thrilled!
The space was truly a ‘blank canvas’- a large wall about 9 ft high and 20 ft long. In order to get a good grasp on the concept, I printed out pictures of New York City and Broadway to help inspire my sketch.
In order to give the mural a nightime feel with glowing lights, I started by painting the entire wall a midnight blue. Then, as I added the bright colors, it was like painting with flourescent lights!
The final result was eye-popping and colorful- hopefully a great reminder to the aspiring dancers of where they can go!
