Default New painter from Adelaide, Australia

Hey everyone,

Im from Adelaide, in South Australia. Im 26 about to venture out onto my own properly in the coming months but have been independent with my work for the last 2 years.

Ive been lurking in the shadows of this forum for a few weeks and read some really great stuff in different aspects of painting.

Ill do a brief 'profile' of my painting persona..

Vehicle: Commodore Sedan with Tradesman Trailer
Attire: Navy Blue electrician pants (have so many pockets and tough linings) with either blue or white Dulux T-Shirt. In summer I wear as little as appropriate because it gets to 40C (100+F) regularly in Adelaide.
Fav. Brush: Any Corona but they are not stocked here so have to get them online, Purdy or Monarch are my backups.
Spray Gun: Magnum 530x, its little but it hasnt failed me yet!

Thats all I can think of.

Good chat!

If you read what I wrote properly mate you would see that I use a trailer, my sedan + trailer costs alot more then any station wagon of similar type, and business is going well, thanks for your concern though.
