The first thing with something like this (room painting) is to do a smaller drawing of the overall idea, which should be worked up as much as possible so that you get a familiar Idea with how everything will interact and look overall (composition).
After the sketch is adjusted, start painting in your base colors. Just a flat color, starting with your darks and largest colors.
And thats it. I used pretty simple, cheap materials; 2oz acrylics that cost $2 each, cheap craft brushes and a 1" paint brush. No clearcoat, I like how the flat colors of the tree contrast with the semi-gloss lilac.
