As an airbrush artist and figure painting hobbyist, I also work with other mediums including acrylic and watercolor. This is a great video that demonstrates the method of painting in layers with thinned out acrylics. A great method that I am familiar with from figure painting, which achieves smooth results and color blends. This is a great video addition for any serious artists library. The artistic information transfers to pretty much any art form. Dave does a great job explaining what he is doing and why in each portion of the video. The only thing to have improved would have been including the final touches and details to finish out the entire picture. However, all of the material lends itself to the artist being able to finish it out themselves utilizing all of the same techniques in the video.
