Lazy Art II

The other night I once again traded my Wacom tablet and Photoshop for a 1 square meter canvas and some random paints to create some more Lazy Art.

 

Ever since I started editing images in Photoshop, the images have been moving towards the abstract, in particular when I started mixed grunge textures and graffiti with portraits. So one day I decided to cut out the digital middle-man - bought a few canvases, paints, and plastered part of my apartment in plastic to create some lazy art.

 

What's more frustrating than painting a black stroke when in your head you know it should've been green? NOTHING!!! It would be cool if I could erase the mistakes like in Photoshop.

 

Lighting: Sunpak 383 in small Alzo softbox, with a wide DIY cardboard grid, angled down and positioned well in front of the Lazy Art, to the right of the camera.
