Spray Can Paintings
I've been experimenting with using spray paint (from cans, like you see in Home Depot, "Painters Touch" brand, I think) and the results are interesting. The support is just cheap posterboard, and I'm trying to combine markers and now acrylic with it. One can use stencils and various masking techniques, just like in airbrushing. Actually, that's what spray paint is, a version of airbrushing without the delicacy (but I'm finding there are ways to control and manipulate the spray which cannot be done so easily with the traditional airbrush). And this is a very FAST medium.... I've only done three paintings so far. The photo is of two of 'em; the other one sucked pretty bad.
