Bourjaily: Spray Paint Camo

Earlier I posted a picture of the General Lee, as recreated with orange spray paint using a Chevy Cavalier as a canvas. Here's some more outstanding spray can car art, this one with a definite hunting theme. I saw this one the other day near home where some bowhunters have evidently moved into the woods for week. If it were still the 1960s and the palette was brighter, the paint job would qualify as "psychedelic."

On a serious note, look at the pattern against the background of trees and sky. With its very light background and high contrast, it does a better job of breaking up an outline than a lot of the photorealistic designer camos on the market. I think the guys who painted this truck might be onto something.
