I’ve been kicking around this idea in my head for quite some time. Basically I wanted to create a piece based on the idea of pointilism and newspaper photos. I used 4 gradations of spraypaint from black, to white to create the original ground for the painting. Then I coated the entire surface with a thin flesh toned oil glaze. Finally, I used a cloth on my finger to remove the glaze from certain points. I was surprised that the overspray from the points created new gradations of value as well in the neighboring points. Which gave the piece more depth.
