Welcome Artists! (The DOG)

We are thrilled to have you involved in this exciting project!
This is the page where you can choose your tile. Please choose your top 3 in the chance that your first choice is not available.
When choosing your tile keep in mind this is your painting and it should reflect your art and style, don’t play it safe, have fun!
– Any story that goes with the painting is a bonus.
– IDEAS consider different breeds, different uses for dogs (rescue, therapy, law enforcement etc), emotional paintings, humorous paintings, cute, etc.
– Most importantly it should look like a complete painting that not only looks great in the mural but makes sense as its own independent painting outside of the mural.
Also the number does not mean thats exactly where your painting will end up in the mural. Some panels may get moved around depending on tones and values and how it works best with the overall image.
If at anytime you have any questions before or during your painting- do not hesitate to send us a note so you feel completely comfortable as you paint. ([email protected] )
(We will try to keep this page updated the best we can as tiles are selected- the sooner you choose and let us know the sooner we can put up new tiles for selection)

Cool tone examples

Although there may be an important line or shape that you can try to make work within your painting, most of the brush strokes can be ignored and are they are just there to help you focus on tone and value. Cool tones are usually the tiles representing the background of the over all mural subject matter and are best choice if you want the most freedom in your painting. Feel free to use contrasting warm colours for details and highlights – Use the 80/20 rule- if at least 80% of the painting is cool tones 20% of the image could be any other colour.

Warm tone examples

Edge Shape examples

Shapes usually make up the edge of the main subject matter or intricate areas within the design. For some artists these are their favourite pieces because they are the greatest challenge and can really be a lot of fun if handled correctly! If done in a creative, clever way they can become the conversation piece of the entire mural. Less freedom but more “wow” potential. Best choice if you are looking for a challenge!
