    do you think its queer to use a wall in your backyard to practice on? ive just recently caught the bug for painting, after putting down my cans for at least 5 yrs.. i kept paper piecing so my style has progressed but i lost all my can control as i found out last week i like my wall, and i dont care what other people think. i just want to know if anyone else is doing this?

    Don't worry about that. I think it's better that people practice at their garage instead covering some spot with ugly shit. If you like painting your garage, paint it. People on here will call you gay regardless.

    Small Town Grime..

    Hell, painting in my garage and under a few select bridges and in the yard a town over.. is about all the hell I do. Don't live in a city big enough to warrent throwies aesthetic speaking ..

    plus cop's don't have anything better to do in my town than ilegally search some kid with a messenger bag walking around at 3am. bastards.

    if i had a backyard, rest assured it would have layers of paint an 2 inches thick. any wall looks better with a piece on it... that is, if the piece is a good one.

    yea, isnt it better to practice in your backyard or someplace, rather than messing up in public?
