New Work Using Stencil and Spray Paint

This is acrylic painting on a birch wood substrate. The base layers were texture medium and covered with gesso.  The underlying acrylic paint colors were added using a brush. Used were the colors: yellow, green, blue, purple, magenta and orange.  You can really see the texture in the close ups.

The black paint was all added using spray paint and stencils. The focal image, the bird, is a stencil as is the radiating sun-like image in orange. Both were added using spray paint in aerosol cans

The balance of the black was added using 3 different lace pieces.  Here is what the whole thing looks like.
