Loveland Classical Schools Wall Logo

I was asked to paint the logo of Loveland Classical Schools on the exterior wall of the building, which was formerly a church. I started with one evening of laying out the logo. I mounted my overhead projector on a ladder in my truck bed, and transferred the logo to the stucco wall with charcoal.

On day one I painted the logo in primer.

I used a big, old paintbrush that happened to be my grandfather's.

On day two, my dad and I painted the entire logo in the school's color, maroon.

The local newspaper came out to take some photos and interview us for a story, which you can read here:

On the third day I added a second layer of maroon to the logo and lettering, and touched up the remnants of the logo left behind. Reds are the hardest colors to cover.
