Sticky Situation

I really liked this piece. It's different and unique and it's not what I normally do. I enjoyed blending with the paints and getting different colors by mixing the different colors. I had to use repetition in this piece and I used it by painting the swirls. The swirls are sticky and represent the spray that comes out of the spray can. In the project I struggled a lot. I could never mix the right colors together to creat the exact same color that I had before. Also I struggle with the blending and application of the paint. While working on this I learned how to blend the paints more effectively to show value. I was pretty proud of my efforts and work overall. I tried to make my painting half realistic and half imaginatory which was a bit different for me, but I liked the risk and I'm happy with my work.
