Commissioning Artist Liliane Avalos for Art Murals: A Comprehensive Guide

Welcome to my blog, where I Liliane Avalos, as a professional artist aim to provide you with a comprehensive guide. Whether you're contemplating a mural for your home, business, or a public space, let's explore the ins and outs of this artistic endeavor. In this article, I will address your concerns and share my expertise on various aspects of the mural creation process. I understand the importance of providing clear and concise information to clients. I also understand how art murals have the power to transform spaces and evoke emotions.


Let's get started.


I. Research and Inspiration

Before we kick off our artistic collaboration, take a moment to immerse yourself in my portfolio. It's a treasure trove of diverse styles and themes that might spark your inspiration. Identify the elements and themes you envision for your mural, aligning them with my artistic flair. This groundwork will empower you to articulate your ideas clearly when we dive into discussions.


II. Contacting Liliane Avalos

Excited to bring your vision to life? It's time to reach out! Head to my official websites contact page or social media channels to find my contact details. Craft a concise, professional email detailing your project specifics—wall dimensions, location, indoor/ outdoor, budget, desired completion date, and any concepts you've been brewing. Feel free to attach reference images or sketches to illuminate your vision.


III. Initial Consultation

Upon receiving your inquiry, I'll be thrilled to schedule an initial consultation. We can chat over the phone or through a video call—whatever suits your preference. This meeting is an opportunity to explore deeper into your project, discussing space details, purpose, audience, and the atmosphere you aim to achieve. Your insights and questions are invaluable during this creative exchange.


IV. Proposal and Contract

Post-consultation, I'll craft a detailed proposal encompassing project scope, estimated timeline, budget, and any additional needs. You might even catch a glimpse of a preliminary sketch or digital mockup. If the proposal aligns with your vision, a contract will follow, delineating terms and conditions—payment schedules, copyright ownership, and provisions for revisions or modifications. It's crucial to review this document meticulously.


V. Execution and Collaboration

With the contract inked and non-refundable deposit, it's time for the magic to unfold. Throughout the creation process of preliminary concept sketches, expect regular updates and seamless communication. Depending on the project's scale and complexity, completion might take days or weeks. I'll be employing various techniques—sketching, painting, and digital manipulation—to breathe life into your vision.


VI. Completion and Final Touches

Once the mural takes shape, it's your time to shine as the critic. Review the final artwork, examining color accuracy, composition, and overall impact. Should minor adjustments be needed, communicate them promptly. Your satisfaction is paramount. Upon your approval, finalize the payment as per our agreed terms.


Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Will I see a sketch before you begin work?

A: Absolutely! Upon contract and deposit, I'll craft an initial concept, open to two revisions included in the cost. Additional revisions are possible at an hourly rate.


Q: How long does the artwork usually take to complete?

A: Timelines vary, but on average, smaller murals with low to medium detail take two or four days. Larger or intricate projects may span weeks. I keep you informed every step of the way.


Q: How long will the artwork last?

A: I pride myself on durability. Indoor murals can last decades, and even outdoor ones endure for years with proper care.


Q: How much will the spray paint smell indoors?

A: Your comfort matters. I use low-odor, indoor water-based spray paint for live events and recommend not staying in the area without a mask during painting.


Q: What happens if the artwork is vandalized?

A: While rare, I'm committed to fixing any defaced artwork at an hourly rate.


Q: Do I need to protect the mural after it's painted?

A: Typically, I don't coat murals, but for high-traffic areas, I can recommend a clear coat or apply one for an extra charge.


Q: Could I supply my own paint to save costs?

A: I recommend using my specialized paint for optimal quality and effects.


Q: Can outdoor work be done in any weather?

A: Weather matters. A minimum temperature of 60°F is ideal for outdoor work.
