So I've had these Yasutomo Waterbrush for a while and I was a little hesitant in trying it. I was never a fan of watercolor beacuse it's such a hard medium to use!...one wrong move and you have to live with that. Unlike acrylic or spray paint you can always go over your mistakes.
But I do have lots of respect to the artists that have mastered the technique.
I love the texture that it has, how the water takes a life of its own and go where ever it wants.
My piece is a 5" x 5" canvas board and I've used a Prismacolor Rouge Toscan PC937 for the color. Title: "Self-Inflicted Pain" It's still a work in progress...
Hope you guys like it.

One of the many reasons why I love painting outdoors is running into interesting people like this guy, he was cool enough to let me take a flik of him. He was also a street artist... check out his piece.
Here's how my piece came out, not bad for a rushed 3 hours work!
Thanks to Alex @ Maintain for letting me jump on the wall and getting to paint with some talented "CATS"! See more of the wall @ http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/album.php?aid=36944&id=100000991671781

When watching TV or movies I've always try to pay attention to the background surroundings to see if I know where the location was filmed at and to see if any graffiti got caught on film. One day I caught "AMAZE" and "GREY" on Discovery Channel's Myth Busters! I think it was about seeing if people can slip and fall on a banana peel! HAHAHAH! I had to rewind and take a flik to share with you all. Free advertisement is always dope!!!
