The back walls are starting to take shape, however some modification of the design has been necessary. Two noticeboards have been removed as well as an old electrical fuse box, which has caused not only an adjustment of the original design but also given the opportunity for the inclusion of more athletes.

Design for Back Walls (Version 2)

Figures that previously appeared on Wall 4 have now been moved to the centre of Wall 2, the new design for Wall 4 presenting a double portrait of Formula 1 Motor Racing champion Lewis Hamilton, first in a seated pose and also driving his car.

However, as the design was transferred to the wall and the painting stage developed, further modifications were made. I felt the small unfilled spaces between figures on my design sheet appeared much too large and empty on the wall itself. More sporting personalities were therefore added to the collection; cyclist Chris Froome, athletes Caster Semenya and Mo Farah, netball player Serena Guthrie and boxer Anthony Joshua.
