1rst & 2nd Step....... As in all art, you have to start off with a good drawing and a good subject. Suzanne Merrill who owns and Breeds Bengal cats in Keilworth, Ontario ( Abundadots ), sent me two pictures of awesome Servals. She asked me to put the kitten with the adult to do a composition for her. I started out with masking the servals. Sprayed the background, with a mixture of transparent tropical green and black airbrush paint. I usually do this late afternoon, to let the paint dry over night for the next steps.Step # 2 Here I used yellow/ gold transparent paint to give depth to the background and to the future leaves that I will put in......I know.....it looks awful now,but wait :)I let this dry overnight, this is important, because I use a high tack mask and If
the paint isn't dry enough, its a disaster ! The paint comes off with the second stage of the masking.
eg: step # 4 , and this is NO fun, I would have to start all over : (
