Red Cypress Brewery Mural
Red Cypress Brewery Mural Painting by Akyros Art & Design Co.
We got hired on by Chris Belcher who was the taproom manager at the time. After a discovery meeting & a couple sketches we landed on this swampy scenery interior mural concept.
The dark foreground was painted first & then we moved to the lighter colors for the background using a paint roller on a stick as the main medium to apply the paint.
Red Cypress Brewing wanted to incorporate "easter eggs" into the mural that was inspired by their beer flavors & designs; Death Roll, Spook Hill, & Devil's Chair
Incorporating the water's reflection & some last minute shading really made the wall come alive.
We are proud to have had the opportunity to create this large mural for Red Cypress Brewery's taproom in Central Florida.
The Red Cypress tree was painted with a mixture of a paint roller on a stick & a brush taped to a stick. Having the extension of the arm really helped with creating a natural, wispy brushstroke. Applying this in a painterly & impressionistic manner allowed for awesome results.
Thank you to the Red Cypress Brewery family that was so gracious, hospitable & easy to work with throughout the whole process. You will be missed!
