RE: 2023 Grand Tour General Discussion
I have not seen a clear definition by GLMC of what a mural is.

I have found definitions that a mural is painted directly to the surface of a building and that another definition that a mural may be a panel or vinyl sheet (or similar) that is affixed to a building.

From a distance they would both appear the same. Close up, one can usually tell if the image is painted directly to the wall/surface.

My question:
If we find a large image/graphic that is originally painted on one medium and then attached to a building wall, is that considered a "mural" for the 2023 Murals Grand Tour?

TIA,
John F

I am sure the the RM will be along shortly with an Official Reply, but my first question would be . . is the image created by hand or is it machine generated ?

My understanding is that an image painted by hand onto a vinyl/plastic panel and bolted to a wall should qualify, but a vinyl wrap printed by a machine and applied to a panel and bolted to a wall would not qualify.

There is more on this specific question in the Q&A thread. http://glmc.org/GLMC_Garage/showthread.php?tid=1110

If it is hand painted and hung, it's fine.

Remember, it's for fun and the top prize is an entry fee refund and a plastic plaque.

I have never heard that before, but yes. Precisely.

Also, feel free to submit whatever you think counts. Can't guarantee it's worth a point, but there are no point deductions for anything.

Making a few of these kickstand pads to send out as finisher prizes. Top 3 positions get gold/silver/bronze colored ones, and then there will be 5-10 glow in the dark ones depending on how long the filament lasts. It will come with 6' of carpenter cord [1.83m for you Aussies] so you can position it and pick it up without stooping to the ground. Also works to put on your lever so you don't forget to grab it when you leave.

A Smaller RallyFlag closer to your camera as seen in a previous pic works great

Not sure you can share photo on that site as an image here. Maybe just put in the link in the post and let people open it in a new tab.

Is that some kind of oil bottle?

Just back from a GT ride, and I thought I'd share a cropped photo of my favourite mural from the ride.

The Glossy Black cockatoo is centre stage, on the left a Goanna is climbing a tree hunting for bird eggs, and on the right is the Long Tailed Emperor butterfly, which can have a wing-span of 85mm (3.5in).

Yep, that's a great use of the side of that building.

Here's another building wall, on a 12 storey scale:

It is a water squirter in the shape of a fire extinguisher which was our Rally flag

If you have a Gmail account I can help. Otherwise I am sure someone else will try to assist.
