Time Lapse of Sgt. Pepper mural at Stanley Dock

Perched on scaffolding several stories above the ground the painter Gary Jones added the final touches to a giant mural designed by the artist Judy Chicago of the four Beatles engulfed in a circular rainbow.

“He is very, very gifted with a paintbrush,” Ms. Chicago said as she sat on the terrace below and described the frequent phone calls she and Mr. Jones have traded as she has watched him execute her mural, first on a webcam from the United States, where she lives, and, over the past week, from a perch in the hotel where she can offer tips to Mr. Jones on his handiwork.
