Airbrush lesson one part three tutorial continues with basic airbrush lessons covering shadowing another essential airbrushing skill needed to become proficient with an airbrush. Written by Don Johnson, airbrush artist
In airbrush lesson #1 part two we went over airbrushing lines and dots here in part three we’ll cover shading. I realize these basic lessons are not the most fun but hang in there once these techniques become second nature you’ll be able to painting pretty much anything you want. By Don Johnson
5: SHADING: Next we will work on shading techniques with the airbrush. We will start on the left side of your paper with the tip of your airbrush several inches back from the surface. Start moving your airbrush straight across the page and lightly apply color as you go. Remember to start moving your airbrush with the air on than gently pull back on airbrush trigger to apply color, as you near the opposite edge of the paper start pushing the airbrush trigger forward shutting the color off and follow through with air on only. Now with the air still on go back to the left side of the page and start all over again. Your goal is to have nice shading (color) all the way across and down the paper with no signs of starting or stopping. Nice even tone all the way across and down the page.
