    Hmm Wonders what their meaning of FINE ART is .
    Being I work closely with a fine art library and museum a lot of the things they display I do not think as fine art.
    But yet it is classified as fine art.
    I will have to think on this one to see if I can come up with something.
    But it is good to see a competition opened to all airbrush artist :D

    Your comment about the definition of "Fine Art" made me think of something I had read when I was first deciding on which airbrush to buy...

    On Chicago Airbrush's website there is an airbrush guide section that recommends different airbrushes for certain applications, with brief descriptions of the applications:

    I guess fine art is basically an illustration, but typically bigger in size than an illustration?

    I liked this part:

    "The word 'fine' does not so much denote the quality of the artwork in question, but the purity of the discipline according to traditional Western European canons."

    Yes, I think it generally covers anything we would do on the mediums provided for. Primarily for aesthetic beauty!
