11×15″, Golden Airbrush paints on Stonehenge Kraft (100% rag paper)
This is a day in the life of my amaryllis plant. I painted this while it was in the budding stage. I loved seeing the colors emerging from the buds, which seemed to grow and open even as I was painting. It’s amazing how quickly that happens once it starts. The morning after painting this, there were already flowers.
The Golden Airbrush paints behave very much like watercolor and gouache. “Airbrush” is such restrictive terminology for these versatile paints. They are great to use with brushes, and also with calligraphy pens. They can also be used on canvas, boards, or other supports you’d use for acrylics, and varnished and framed without glass like oils. I’ve just started working with them in the past six months or so. I’m enjoying exploring their capabilities!
