Your work is amazing. What brand and type of paint do you use? I was asking about storage of your actual art supplies. I want to be able to take some of my stuff with me-I usually paint in acrylics and prefer Nova paint. I turned an old garage into my studio and its packed so condesning is a challenge for me.LOL Your story is inspiring and hope to hear more.

Those Murals...

When we were challenged with replicating 'old sepia photos' into murals...there had to be a formula. Ordinary FLAT BLACK OIL PAINT...when you shoot it thru the airbrush, has the same nature as soft charcoal all the values and shades are available. But only with a spray gun. Once a phot was inlarged, we painted in as best as possible the picture by sight...then to seal it and antique it we took a few gallons of 'Sealkrete' (looks like milk) and mixd in as much sepia color as desired and sprayed the over-sized mural with it until the coloration appeared...Voila! And this was the formula to painting old photos...Flat Black paint and then the sealer. Do you airbrush any?

No, I have never tried it. I would love to watch sometime. I have so many "projects going that I won't allow myself to take on anything more requiring equipment.LOL I am going to the Kanuga Watercolor Workshop, in Hendersonville, NC in two weeks and I about broke the bank getting my supplies together. My students want to do a mural and I am just not sure where to start(I am teaching developmentally disabled adults.)

I bet you I can help you alot...I take care of an individual who is disabled...and he works with me for the excercise...We are technical illustrators, meaning we use certain equipment to move art (from small to big or place to place)...thats if it is needed. We are not a major company or anything...Angel is somewhat of a mechanic and I am the artist...we use as little equipment as possible! I can't stand accumulation! Drives me nuts! Anyway if you want to go sideways you can get all the advice you want from me to help you out...But I bet in the end you will end up with an airbrush or some form of spraying equipment...If you look in the corners of those pictures you will see my email...write to me anytime.
