Re-do project

It was really easy for me to chose my idea for this project.  I thought of the self portrait I did in 6th grade and how horribly bad it turned out so it was obviously easy to chose that.  I didn't just want to do the same old thing though because that would be terribly boring so I chose a picture of not just me, but my brother and I.  I started off by making a stencil because I knew I wanted to spray paint the image on to the canvas.  I did this with photo shop and the projector.  After I finished the stencil the next step was obviously to spray paint it which didn't take much time at all.  It looked finished but I knew it wasn't, I just wasn't sure what to add to it.  I kept thinking of different ideas until I found watercolors in the back room.  Sadly I spilled the orange water color on the floor and it looked like blood, woops, but it gave me a great idea to make it look like water color spilled in the background of my artwork.  I tried it and I really like how it turned out!
