You've got my attention, nice work R. Bright, fluid colors, surreal. Do I see a rosebud? :notworthy:

Close up and personal shot. Had loads of fun getting new tones by blending colours I've never blended before to get those ripe and juicey shades.

if you dont mind my asking, how many colors and how many cans of spray does it take to do that?
i mean aside from the visual which i love, thats a lot of depth and it looks very large
in my mind i see the execution of a piece like that as skilled as the mind it takes to come up with the image if you see what i mean
like a really good printer like firehouse can take an image to the next level with a really skilled print job
thanks for posting, i could look at that piece for a while

Hi Flimby it took 22 seperate colours with around 30 cans in use including the doubles and I emptied around 8 full cans in the process.

I also used the base emulsion coat of salmon pink as an extra layer to get more variants as well as blending the spraypaints over each other.

It took 3 days at 8 hours a day but half of that was spent talking to passersby and my fellow graffiti writers who were painting in the same location. Also I played around for a long time with the colour combinations until I was happy with the mixes.

I've got some progress shots on my camera I'll dig out so you can see the process from outline to finished piece.

would love to see some process shots! How you get some of those textures is just beyond my comprehension as a brand new sprayer...

Cheers Jaden and EGT. Here's the process shots and I always say a sound foundation in your inital sketched outline makes for a good result:
