Picture perfect - Presbyterian Support, James Trust Complex

Presbyterian Support, James Trust Complex Uninspiring grey interior walls at the Presbyterian Support, James Trust Complex in Morrinsville Road, Hamilton are now a talking point for children and adults alike.

The entranceway, reception and two hallways have been transformed into snapshots of New Zealand's flora and fauna with scenes encapsulating 'Pukekos in Marshland', 'Rockclimbing by the Sea', 'Bush and River Vista' and an 'Underwater Grotto'.

Two coats of Resene Lumbersider were applied over the old grey paint finish to give an even background upon which the muralist could weave magic.

The mural colour palette was focused around four key colours - Resene Jordy Blue (sky blue), Witch Haze (light clean yellow), Atoll (teal) and Kaitoke Green (bush green). Each of the key colours was used individually and also intermixed with the other key colours to provide shades and tints as is common in oil painting. Colours from other projects were also added into the mix to boost the range of colours but comprised no more than 10-15 per cent of the total finish, with the four key colours and their intermixes comprising the other 85-90 per cent.

With beautiful home-grown scenes adorning four high traffic areas, children chatter and peer delightedly while adults quietly contemplate New Zealand's natural beauty.
