I had a friend years ago who did some gorgeous stuff with airbrush.

I've always been impressed with that particular art technique.

Poor, "black!" No fancy name for it, huh? Haha!

I wish I could paint. I cannot even draw a stick figure.

I cant wait to see what grafitti you have come up! i wonder who comes up with the names?

Barbara said...

Those colors bring back my days of oil painting. Just the other day, I was thinking of picking it back up.

Thanks for this TT. Check mine out.

Is "Hookers" the name of the brand or named after a prostitute color? Lol!

Sarge Charlie said...

Oh mike, do you have a rag tied on your head, necessary for grafitti, good luck

Marcia said...

Several of these colors are new to me, like hooker green - what color of green is that? Phthalo blue is one of my favorite colors. Can't wait to see photos of the finished trains.

when you say you do grafitti on trains I assume you mean legal grafitti on your own trains not the stuff the some of the more creative vandals get up to on public transport? Sound like some wonderful colour though - you could make a rainbow with these.

Mike, do you have to ask for those colors or are they placed somewhere? #4 and #7 sound a bit difficult =)

I´m looking forward to see the train artwork in... maybe bright orange, hansa yellow medium, a bit titanium white and mainly napthol red light =)

I´m sorry I didn´t make it on Thursday… we´ve had a car accident on the freeway – but I´m trying to catch up today as promised. Here you´ll find my TT #12 if you feel like!
