Traditional Signwriting Shop Front: Moyses Stevens

Hi Everyone, this is my first posting to the forum.
The project was Moyses Stevens Florist, the fairy is the company logo, and the warrant is Prince of Wales. I used one shot, several Handover brushes, and the warrant was painted with a Mack Virus.
This was painted direct to the building using a scaffold.

Hi!
Love seeing painted stuff, especially when it's as nice as this.
Welcome from PA, from someone who paints whenever possible.
Love....Jill

Thanks for the heads up Luke, however I'm quite sure the company is under new ownership. They have been really lovely to work with and one of the most reliable clients i have ever had with regards to pay.

Excellent work matt, thanks for sharing with us mate...

I have tried sign writing with a brush at a letterheads meet.
I am good at drawing, i enjoy painting, though ive been told i am good, i think i am pretty naff at it. however, "sign writing" man did i struggle... :oops:
Hats off to all the traditional sign makers out there, it is far from easy, you lot just make it look that way. :wink:


i'll stick to the sticky suff... pardon the pun! :lol1:


thanks for taking the time to load your work matt, as has been said in this thread, its good to see "more" traditional work here on the boards.

Love it too, perfect use of that space. Painting is lovely and light and not overworked. Look forward to seeing more of your work!
