The Famous Ruth’s Chris Steak House Mural
Last Year I was commissioned to Paint a mural for Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Newington, CT.
We decided with The client to do it in old sepia tone or tone on tone / grisaille.
Our reference photo was the original Ruth’s Chris in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The mural was quite large, nearly 22ft. long. We couldn’t project so we did a transfer using tinted chalk mixed with lighter fluid, making a paste that allow are paper to transfer the image.
Here’s my assistant Christie Biotti sponging on the chalk to the back side of our printouts.
Sketching in and begin painting.
I Decided to do the Sky is a pale blue grey so the the sepia would pop even more.
Also a Little color to the Trees.
It was hard ti get the whole mural in the photo because of the short wall.
We installed the Mural and the clients Loved it. They were so good to us, when we finished they gave us a free dinner. I must say if you are a steak lover it was the best I’ve ever had. Cant wait to go back!
