Airbrush Lesson Two

Airbrush Lesson Two

 

Airbrush lesson two tutorial will cover shading and rendering a sphere putting to use the shading skills you learned in lesson one.This another one of those airbrushing basic skills you’ll need to have down so it’s second nature to become proficient with your airbrush. By Don Johnson, airbrush artist

What you will need to complete this airbrush lesson: double action airbrush, airbrush ready colors, round template, paper, easel. I just used a round piece of plastic as a template feel free to use anything round you have on hand. With airbrush ready paints (Golden Airbrush Colors, Com-Art) and using a gravity feed airbrush 10 to 20 PSI should work fine for this lesson.

Step #1) Secure you round template to your painting surface, paper in this case. This is accomplished much easier standing up with your paper mounted on an easel virus’s setting down.

Step #2) With the color you’ve chosen to use airbrush a nice even circle around your template. Notice off to the right where I’ve tested my airbrush by spraying some color before start to work on the good portion of this painting. It’s always a good idea to test your airbrush to ensure it’s working correctly before appling color to your project. Also notice I follow the contour of the round template and did not apply color by airbrushing a crossed the template.

    I have an 18″ tall statue of the virgin Mary that I am restoring. The major part of the robe is white with a narrow opening almost full length that is dark blue. These two colors are quite stark. I’d like to shade the white area to soften the color contrast. Can you give me some suggestions?
    Thanks
