Professional Muralist Art Process Demo | How I Painted Murals On This Backyard Building | Cedar Lee

In 2004, I painted murals on all four sides of this giant metal shipping container that had been repurposed as a backyard garden shed in Asheville, NC. Here are the old murals from 2004:

After 17 years, the owner was ready for a modern upgrade, and I agreed to paint fresh new murals over the old ones, using my current skills and art style, which have both grown a lot since then!

Watch the video below showing my art process as I completed this mural project:
