Here's what I'm going to do:

Every week I'm going to post pictures of 2 recent paintings by Scottish writers, and I'd like for people to vote for the one they prefer.

I'll try to post paintings that I think would have taken a similar amount of time of time and are in similar locations, like 2 trackside dubs or 2 legal productions.

Graffiti is not a competition, but I think this thread could be something worth reading, if not for the pictures themselves, for the result of the poll.

This week we have:

Arek's skatepark Chromer


VS

Keys' wobbler


Which do you prefer?

i really like the keys style and colours

but the arek foto is jst a nailer. the snow and the pale sky really contrasts and brings out the colours
in the piece

so got to pick the arek 1, more to do with the settin and the like but i guess tht comes into aswell wen yer thinkin through doin a piece.

Yeah, I think setting is really important, and that a pieces placement can refect is quality.
So Arek for me too.
Nice idea Gung, I hope it keeps going.

Keys.

I really like the arek, and the photos really nice too, but the location would be pretty dull in real life.

They keys is just too gully all round.

I know this thread is called "painting of the week", but I'm going to hand this one to AREK a couple of days early. I would leave it longer, however I want to maintain the thread's initial momentum.

So, congratulations AREK! Commiserations KEYS, with time the pain of defeat will ease.



This week we have Edinburgh legend ELPH against young up-and-comer ZOKES:






Both fine pieces, I'm sure you'll agree, but which is better?

You've picked a hard one for us this week gung, both are very well painted, both have great colours, proportions are good but overall I prefer the Zokes if i'm being honest so my vote is to Zokes

The zokes has too much goin on visually, i think if the zokes was jst a one colour fill so the letterforms were more clear then id go with that but the elph is alot more easy on the eye and looks like its more balanced with everything around it so my choice is elph

Zokes for me anawl, a think the only reason the colour scheme looks manky is because the background husny been emulshioned a good colour.

The letters ir well good, a like the symetrical steez.

King G2 has point but I don't really care. Just stay out of the photo threads.


I'm going for Elph here.
