It has been my privilege for the last couple of weeks to be a mentor to a wonderful young artist while she worked on her senior graduation project.
|Krista and Me|
I was able to document most of the process and I just finished looking over all of the photos. I didn't know just how much could be achieved with spray paints. I wanted to show you the technique she used that was my favorite.
|Experimenting with layering, and negative and positive spaces.|
|Okay, now to the start the real deal.|
Are you blown away yet? I think this would be a great advertisement for Valspar spray paints!
So, I will cut to the chase and show you the almost finished product.
I can't reveal the finished piece yet because she hasn't presented it but, you get the idea.
I watched in awe these past couple of weeks as Krista learned to control the flow of the spray and to manipulate drips and dribbles for the effects she was after.
I will never look at spray paint the same again!
Have any of you been to San Francisco and seen the street art? That was her inspiration. I am so proud of her!
