WORK

Spray paintings

Today I did some spray painting and produced a few pieces. I took sequential photos for one of them and partially of another. Here is what I did: This gif contains 2 photos, before and after the final addition of black paint. I took photos as I knew it would create a dramatic contrast and […]
