In celebration of Black History Month, I've created this mural in the style of William H. Johnson (1901-1970), a very talented painter who had a difficult life. He came to be widely admired for his primitive style and bright colors, but sadly, only after he had passed away. I love the rural scenes that he often painted, so I’ve created a new mural with big, flat shapes in his style of drawing that you may color however you’d like – the bolder and brighter, the better.
This template contains 25 pages and measures 50"x 40" when complete. A color key is included, instead of color callouts, as this is an original artwork and may be colored any way you’d like. Click on the image above to see a preview of the template pages.
