Hi. all!

Finally, i did it! I learned all i could about airbrushing and got everything i needed to start training on my own. And allthough i only just started, i've learned SO much just these past couple of weeks. You could say i got hooked. I've been drawing since forever but have never kind of found the right scene so of speak. Charchoal is fun but limiting (for me, anyway), pencils and markers, brush painting, oils and acrylics. I tried them all but either its too slow, or i cant seem to get real hang of if. But with airbrushing a whole new world opened up, and i just cant put it away. I'm having so much fun its ridicolous :)

I'm from norway, and here sadly, theres not much market for airbrush artists. But after searching everywhere for a dealer i finally found somebody locally who actually makes airbrushes. So i bought one and i like the feel of it, and it looks nice with a good chrome job and a brass finish. Its pretty small, but at the same time ergonomic. Its called "Small-size" and is made for model painters. With a 0.3 nozzle i get really fine control, but i'm also learning the hard way about tipdry. I think its a good thing, because i also learn plenty about different paints, mixing with thinners and other media. I also bought a compressor but i couldnt find couplings to match the airbrush. So i started to research again. You wont believe how many hours i've used just browsing for parts. I ended up with having to by yet another compressor, and that didnt fit either! I was SO frustrated, and it actually took three whole months to get started. Now i only need a valve to adjust pressure into the airbrush as the compressor is constantly set on aprox 50 psi. I am also thinking about re-building the first one i bought, as it has a much larger tank.

These last days i've been experimenting with mixing colors and mediums, and am i glad i did! One can save tons of money this way and thats allways a good thing.
I'll be sure to upload some of my paintings shortly, and maybe get some constructive criticism.

Anyway, i just wanted to say hi and maybe make som new friends too? That'd be great. I miss "talking shop".. :)

Greetings from norway.
