Brown Bear Skull (Acrylic ink and watercolor in Moleskine sketchbook, 8x5").
I was surprised and excited to have received an airbrush kit over Christmas as I'd been eyeing them for the last couple of months. I have a tendency to neglect backgrounds and thought an airbrush would help create an interesting atmosphere. I had this brown bear skull pencil drawing sitting in my Moleskine sketchbook, and decided to take the airbrush to it. I loaded the airbrush with a diluted blue acrylic ink mixture and covered the background and lightly filled in mid-tone parts of the foreground. I proceeded to finish the rest in watercolor. I had a great time using the airbrush and am curious to see where I take it.
