I did this weeks Freestyle Friday, I experimented with a scratch art project. I had my program try this one out. First I layered the crayon on thick. Then painted over the whole thing with Tempra Paint. Last I scratched in the design. This could still use some work. I may switch the Tempra with Acrylic.
This week I took more time detailing and designing the initial sketch. I did 2 sketching sessions of building and blending. I then splashed on some water colors randomly blending them together. I let that dry and then I filled in some of the shapes to fill it out. Finally, I went in with an ink pen and detailed the main figure.
This week I sketched out some ideas I had for a create and destroy wall. This piece is focused on create. I unified the letters for create with the background and vise versa. I used water colors and water colorpencils for the next step. To finish it off I tightened it up with ink pens and colored pencil
This weeks Freestyle Friday is just the way that I work out concepts and letter styles.
I work out a lot of designs and structures at the wall on site. But working out some of the ideas
and treatments before hand lets me get a clearer picture and also gives me something to show the people I am workinhg with. Each design or effect could be for one letter, a whole piece or whole background.
I started this sketch a couple weeks ago but with the Jersey Fresh Graffiti Jam coming up I let it sit. Started out wit some mechanical drawings in colored pencil. Added some water color filling in areas, but also blending, and splashing.
Added a skull with ball point pen as the main image tried to keep it translucent. Finished it with some shading with water color and colored pencil.
Started out with a small sized deco paint marker. I tried to be as clean as possible and make things still line up properly.
Finished off with water color and colored pencil.
This week I waited until the last minute to rock this joint. So I decided to work with spray paint. I did the first few layers with streaks, blurrs, and dots. Colors are important at this stage. I used all bright colors to off set the Black and White piece to come later. Filled and outlined the piece with acrylic. Detailed with a Gold and a Red paint marker.
Back to Basics! Started out with some craft paint and a cheap foam brush. I worked in some basic shapes allowing the Greens and Blues to mix together. Rocked the Trenton Makes with Painters and created an abstract design around it. I decided it needed a character and I added in the face. Next rocked his hand with a spray can. Filled Everything in at least twice. “Trenton Makes..Graffiti”
Since last week I rocked the background first and then built the layers on top. So this week I did the reverse. I free styled the outline starting with the word flow and working out. I added a couple layers to the sketch below. Then I finished it off with some watercolor.
So I needed to do a new UV piece for the https://www.leonrainbow.com/shows/2010/bangkok-blacklight-at-smile-gallery-in-philly/ so I took some larger paper. I decided to use the piece with the coffee stains..to see if I could rock over it. Took it in the backyard because I new I was gonna be a bit messy for the first few layers. Added a few messy layers with UV paint and water. Then added some mists and tags with fluorescent spray paint. Took it in the house and added some watercolor and colored pencil.
