This bathroom mural is painted in very subtle colors without a lot of vibrancy or contrast to affect the viewer in a way that is soothing, especially since there is a soaking tub not in the photo. The mural is in view of the bath so that it can act as a meditation aid. The design is meant to be more of a pattern than a landscape with depth. The inspiration was seeing my first zen art display and noticing the way the art made me feel calm and meditative. Designing a mural for indoor living always takes careful color selection so that it is flattering to the room and has the appropriate psychological effect.
