What do you like about this subject?

The photo of the Palomino was airbrushed on a 3x3 ft mirror. I love the airbrush for the unlimited uses and surfaces,and the effects you can create with even a simple inexpensive (double action) Passche or Badger brand.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I am always trying to improve my art through experimenting with different masking and stencil techniques. I never stop learning.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

The airbrush has been around since the 1800's in one form or another.
