Creating something of such sheer size as murals relaxes me - especially when painting themes from nature. I use a lot of airbrush while creating, but always combine it with traditional painting techniques and the help of some tricks I've learned while studying the Japanese traditional arts. Using traditional styles for modern paintings lets me reflect on my sumie and look at my art from a different perspective, improving my techniques.

Here are some images taken from larger murals - click on the thumbnails to view them.
