A basic estimate is free from using this chart, however preparation of comprehensive sketches requires quite  a bit of research on my part--as well as using a lot of computer-printer's ink, so I charge a $200 non-refundable sketch-fee to prepare sketches, deductible from the total fee.  Prices for murals are variable depending on surface of walls, height, and many other factors...and do not include scaffold or travel/lodging expenses, should they apply.  (you may print this chart 'landscape').

Using the bunny vignettes as an example, there is a minimum cost of $400 for just one vignette (of any type) to be done on canvas or paper, and $500 minimum to be painted on-site.

Type B includes also the Children's "Hot Air Balloons", as they have more detail than simple cartoonish figures.  Also the 'Banana Leaf' design is a good example of stylized graphics.  MEDALLION:  Ceiling work is 1 times price of wall work.

Garden scenes, land-scapes, & animals;  more detailed child rooms, such as fairies, castles, & unicorns, would be Type C or D, depending on density.

High detail consists of buildings, any architectural struc-tures, cars, ships, and human figures, as well as detailed animal figures.
