Using stencils and spray paint is one of my favorite methods of adding pattern and colour to paintings. I have mixed feelings about it as I realize that spray paint is not great for the environment but, boy, do I love the results. Though I do prefer painting in the garden in the summertime, I am grateful for a heated garage whenever it is required, and having such a large space to work in makes me very happy. I'm getting close to finishing the preparation on these canvases for next year's 52 WEEKS project and have begun doing a bit of research. I'm already getting excited for next year.
