Ed Ruscha that absolute babe

Once again all over Ruscha's paintings in acrylic. No idea how he gets that misty effect but love the way it looks like a faded old film. Very dramatic. Since looking at a new typography brief i really wanna play around with that shadowy effect of the text. Its interesting how it makes the viewer think while looking at an essentially empty painting. His use of language- random words, spacing and colour all blend seamlessly to make this very striking impact on the viewer.
