    Hello everyone, I am an intermediate airbrusher that has been airbrushing off and on for the past 2 years with increasing frequency. Color still baffles me so I am working within my comfort zone gaining brush control and skills. I mainly am still practicing and have never sold any of my work or commissioned anything as haven't thought I was good enough but feel I'm getting close now. Heard about this site and how awesome it is for information and help

    Welcome from Australia.
    Where do you call home, what sort of things do you paint and what with?

    Don't be shy about posting pics of your work, we love seeing creativity of others.

    Welcome from New Zealand. The Airbrushtutor has some great tutorials on colour that will likely help

    Can edit and crop the pic with iPhone features. This will make the file a little smaller, but it still might not be enough. There's a free app I use called Pic Shop Lite. It seems to work great when edit pics taken from my phone.

    Welcome aboard from the UK. I think all you are lacking is confidence in yourself. The rocks look fab.

    As for colour theory - well that's above my head. I basically just wing it. A bit of experimenting soon shows you what works and what doesn't. Just go for it, practice, or do trial runs before applying it to the actual work, and you'll get it. Just practice on the same colour background as you intend to use. Keep an eye out for colour shift, for example white over black will give a blue tinge. But the best way to find out what is what, is just to do it.

    Plus now that you found us, you have a whole new global family on hand to advise.
