Painting The Psychiatric Ward

November 4, 2015

The psychiatric ward I am in felt rather clinical with it’s white walls and grey doors. There was no colour, nothing to look at as you paced up and down the same corridor and so the ward manager asked me to paint some art on the walls. It was good because it gave me a focus but also brightened up the place.
