First piece at my new Leeds spot painted over the easter weekend entitled The Simple Satisfaction Of The Boolean Subtraction.

Really pleased how this came out and it's definately one to be seen in real life as it's got a life of it's own.

I also played around with a lot of new shading techniques and the proportions and shapes of the body lengthing parts. Parts like the thigh, shins and ankles, lips, cheek and partioning and fragmenting the face, slightly shrinking the blue hand with a lot of detail and enlarging the orange hand but blurring the detail in order to change the compostion of the piece in order to match the recurring geometrical angles and to pull the eye of the viewer into the piece.

Yes all painted freehand in belton premium as its my favourite paint and I can get it cheaply in bulk. But I'll use any spray paint in my pieces including cheap budget brands like plastikote or old car paints I grew up using like like Hycote/Carplan and I even use cans I find dumped in the bins and bushes by the younger writers as they throwaway loads of perfectly good paint and I was brought up being taught "waste not, wan't not" :wink:

Can you come over here and do that? :wink:

There's a strip of wall that I pass by on the bus everyday, and it has some beautiful graffiti / art on it. Someone recently painted their own work over it, but it takes over the entire thing. I would've liked it more if they had left some of the older work up.
