Purple Haze

Believe me, this is not about Jimi Hendrix. It's another of my attempts to make a slightly larger nebula picture. My airbrush and paint mix has always resulted in a slight granular texture, which shows more in the little pieces than in a larger one, since you look at the smaller area more closely. If I had spent more money and gotten a finer airbrush, I would have been able to spray paint with a photographic smoothness. Now all I have to do is use the "Airbrush" tool in Photoshop.

"Purple Haze" is acrylic on illustration board, 14" x 20", October 1990.
