    Looks alot like my style of watercolor airbrush/brush work. A great form of media-great job!

    Your technique looks very similar to mine, except most of my subjects  are painted underwater. I use airbrush for the photo real effects, but am interested in your media and technique. Perhaps we can exchange info. Very nice work Martin. Stan

      Hi Stan,

      I only just noticed the comments and the chance to reply! Thanks for the compliment. I paint using Winsor and Newton Gouache on archival illustration board. I airbrush the large areas of colour and I then paint all the details with a brush.
      I am presently selling these at

      Thanks again.
