Mr Harper, an artist with more than 20 years experience, is painting the mural on the wall at the end of the Shambles on the Market Place.
The trompe l’oeil art technique will help to create a focal point and complement the historic Guidhall.
Life-sized silhouette Tommies are to be placed around the town and thousands of knitted and crocheted poppies will be draped down the Guildhall clock tower
The public are invited to watch as Mr Harper completes his piece of art.
