View Full Version : Sunset in inks and airbrush from oil study

03-13-2006, 12:52 AM
Hi, here is a studio piece that I worked up from a plein air study done at a recent Plein Air competition. (See the posthttp://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4431456#post4431456)
I started with airbrush, only to have my compressor die once I had laid in the sky.
Faced with the dilemma on how to proceed I grabbed my brushes and inks to create the work below.

"Balmy Night" Airbrush and inks on board, Sunday 12/03/2006
Once the airbrush is working again I'll just haze the horizon. Any c and c welcome.

Wow. How interesting. An airbrush is the last thing I'd think of for reworking a p/a. Looks like it worked well for you, so far. I'm looking forward to seeing the haze you mentioned.

this is very pretty...love the sky colour....but the composition bothers me..horizon and sun smack in the middle....crop off the top 1/3 of the painting.

I have a question:

What do you mean by ink and what ink are you using and how archival is it? I have had trouble with ink fading, although it works fine in an airbrush. I have used watercolor mostly in airbursh and it seems to be more archival.

Painting is coming along nicely. once the orange sky is reflected in the water, it should be finished.
