West Lake Mural

Xī Hú (西湖; literally "West Lake") is a famous fresh water lake located in the historic center of Hangzhou, Zhejiang province,China. With its beautiful pink lotuses and tranquil waters, it was once an emperial retreat. West Lake is now enjoyed by travelers from China and abroad.

I began this mural some time ago as a headboard for our bed. Recently I have returned to it.

The center panel of the three-panel screen is now complete.

My next step is to add values to the side panels to create a 3D effect and to complete the colorful panels.

The tranquility of the West Lake produces that same tranquil effect in this get-away bedroom.
