During the process I did a lot of experimentation with the medium, since it was my first experience with spray paint. To create the speckled effect, I pulled back on the nozzle and pressed it down as lightly as I could. I wish I had got more colors of paint so that I could have used the speckling to create some more depth.
I wasn’t sure I liked the stripe effects and I wanted something to fill out the space around the letters. I also want to incorporate the dripping paint look. In hindsight it would have looked better do do this first to keep it behind the lettering.
I feel like I learned a lot about graffiti art during this experimenting. I’m looking forward to exploring the medium further in the future.
