Recent work: hand painted restaurant branding logo on distressed wood in San Diego
This bit of sign painting at Gravity Heights Brewery in San Diego was in the works for about 8 months. The client wanted to put a brand inside the restaurant space with the logo hand painted onto a distressed wood slat wall background. The slats had a lot of texture to them, as well as about 3/8” of space between them.
With highly textured rough surfaces, the goal from my end is to make it appear to viewers that the logo is one solid piece — almost as if the texture disappears. That means I’ll need to do extra work with the brush to fill in the texture areas smoothly.
Some progress in hand painting this Gravity Heights logo in San Diego. Below is a time-lapse video.
The next couple of photos show the texture and the gap between the slat wall slats… all of it painted to make the logo appear to the viewer to be printed on the surface!
