Airbrush Videos

Time Lapse painting of a Hummingbird using the Bokeh technique

Welcome back to another fun little demo and time lapse video of how to paint a hummingbird, in mid flight.  I like to use several different illusions in this painting.  The background is a photography technique called Bokeh which is the use of out of focus backgrounds to emphasize the subject matter.  Another really fun technique, which is also a photographers technique and that is the motion blur.  I use these to really capture the movement, depth and speed of a hummingbird in the painting.  So grab your airbrush and let’s get to it!


So there you have it! A quick look at how to paint a hummingbird using the airbrush and paint brush.  Thank you for joining me today, I hope you had fun!
