spray paint repelling water color? hmmm that is interesting............
so you're also using a splatter/drip method in the shadows as well i see, something i was thinking of doing for my Painting project. i already got the templates cut right now i'm thinking of how the background should look since it's a surrealistic project. this will be FUN for me since it's not painting still life objects.
do you think the same could work for oils? if not i guess i'll have to invest in more acrylics or some watercolors.
that's what i was thinking, oils are so heavy and thick not to mention messy. i got a couple acrylics but they're neutral colors--black and white. i might experiment with the oils to see what comes up as far as both splatter/drip and the spray repellant technique. i might try "flecking" as well (the art of using your lid for the spray paint can and deflecting paint off the lid while spraying in it but getting the splatter on the canvas. some people just spray the lid and toss, or "fleck", the paint on the canvas) since i've heard of graffiti artists using that technique.
This one is also flipping gorgeous. Your use of pinks and reds and purples together I've only see done that well by the likes of Francis Bacon, and Claude Monet. Funny how I really hate pink, really can't stand it (dude thing, I think). Yet when it's used properly in art, it's gorgeous. The way it gets used in all the fan art and cosplay stuff kinda' makes me wanna vomit up the same color. But in this piece is beautiful.
The lips are great, and I love the abstract sort of mottled textures in the shadows of her face. Also the red letters are very cool.
Really appreciate those nice words and great comparisons. And I don't mind pinks in my art, basically because I like bright colors, any bright color. And I know exactly what you mean about the fan art, there is way to much on this site, and it becomes so much of an over-kill. I get those abstract textures from the spray paint repelling the water color, happy accidents and all. Thanks
