Hi Everyone, I just got back from an awesome trip out West and at several stops in California in particular we saw street vendors doing these paintings, using a combination of Bob Ross techniques and airbrush techniques (using spray cans.) Does this technique have a name and is there any internet info on it -- like YouTube videos or the like? I was fascinated watching these guys, but naturally they weren't anxious to share ANY info on what they were doing or how they learned. (My interest -- I want to use these techniques on a cake!) If anyone is familiar with this or can help guide me I'd appreciate it. Thanks all!
This video looks like it fits the bill pretty well:
That's pretty much it. This one guy used a few more Bob Ross tree techniques in his paintings, but the landscapes, stars and planets were all done the same way. Thanks!
I've seen a couple of artists like this downtown at the Freemont Street Experience in Las Vegas, but I don't remember them using any brushes... only the spray cans, newspapers, and other odd things on hand. Their technique appeared to be more about layering that was scraped away. The artists were a paint-covered mess, but they got a lot of attention and it was pretty cool to watch!
