Acrylic Brush and Airbrush
This is a killer painting, and really impressive to see the original in person. Dad had this one framed up for the longest time, and what happens when you have a framed piece of art in an airbrush studio, the micro particles of spray glue used for acetate float around and find a nice comfortable surface to land on. Between that and paint particles and eventually a nice top layer of dust that sticks nicely to the paint and the spray glue, you get a nice, dull finish.
So when I pulled this out of its frame to take a look, I was floored by the vibrancy and clarity and pop of these colors. No wonder Dad framed it up, it is a really, really amazing piece!
