A Weekend in Bundoran with buckets of paint!!!

Off to work we go!!! Dan & myself are heading to the lovely Bundoran this weekend to tackle a beast of a commission. We have been asked by the lovely folk at the well known Turf n Surff lodge to paint the front of their Hostel.
The hostel is a mean three storey house with loads of windows and ledges. Its the pink one in the picture.  Were hoping to get the front painted in 2 n a half days. Its right on the strand and will be seen for miles out. We cant wait to get cracking at it. Gonna be a fun wekend me thinks. Think we'll need some long johns and gloves fo sho!!!! We plan on painting a mean Octopus breaking out from the wall. We have spent serious money on paints and materials so we hope to make this pop off the wall. Nice colours too. Out in my van sits at least 100 or so cans of spray paint as well as buckets of house hold paint all mixed into nice bright colours. Ill post up a pic of the finished piece. The pic below is the sketch we did just to get the basic colours we wanted. Once this is detailed and up on the wall it should be great. Wish us luck and if anyone is in Bundoran throw a sandwich  to us and maybe a heater.

Hey Mick, I was looking for your little ghost gallery you told me about on Saturday & found your blog. I posted a pic of TurfnSurf mid art work on our fan page. Love it so far and I've everyone with fingers crossed & saying prayers for fine weather so you can finish it off. Here's the link to the pic.
