Practically non-existent,old buddy!
Only bust the paint pens out for special occasions
and when i want a certain look!
it's mostly about paint and brushes now!
a bit more time-consuming tho...




I wasn't sure if the white highlights were paint pen or no.... Anyway I have wanted to see some brush only Ruzic pieces for some time and it sure doesn't disappoint! This piece is MASTERFUL!!!!

Hello Folks!
a little pre-work posting...
i got up early for this,so please....no shouting this morning...
thank you for your cooperation....

Sneaks-here comes another one ALL BRUSH,baby!
You'll be surprised at the amount of these there are already out there...
i segue-wayed into it slowly....imitating the strokes of the paintpen
and just using a brush...... Outlines are a pain in the behind to render with a brush
so there are a lot pieces that have acrylic grounds with a paintpen outline....
here's an oldies that's All acrylic...
"See No Evil (etc.) totem...


GROG-Thank you my funny fannypacker!
Thorsten has a great unique style...
I've been looking at Braque's,Picasso,Thorsten,and a slew of others who have delved into this look..
What an eyeful of great works! They've been so inspiring...
I only hope i can bring a little LLT to this way of painting and contribute to its advancement...
Hack? an artist never should work in a complete vacuum
it's a mutual inspiration club,remember?
Now go get your Warner Brothers jacket dry-cleaned or something
i gotta go talk to my other guests.....

Wendy-Wow! How sweet! Thank you for helping to spread the love!
Your "red Dirt Parking lot" is amazing!
I hope they place our art next to each other in the Scootiki exhibition
so they can chat it up at night after everyone's gone....
Hugs to you,my amazing ambidextrous friend!

Brad-Thank you! It's really enjoyable wandering off the path for awhile
and meeting a new style to play with!
It's even better when a good friend and fellow artist chimes in with such kind words! Thanks Brad!
Miss you man!

Well..... played with another abstract this week
when i should have been working on other things.....my bad...
But when the spirit moves you
one's gotta follow it!

Here is a step-by-step of my latest for you to check out and see how it's done at the batcave..
It's called "Visit of the Sun"

Step 1 slather Olives and mustards and magentas on masonite

Step 2 Draw it out on the DRY surface with a white pastel pen
(so you can wipe off the excess with a wet cloth

Step 3 start on the shadows with a Raw Umber


Step 4 start filling in other colors
(the palms/flowers/the Sun's rays/etc.)


Step 5 Start applying shadowing on those colored areas
Also begin applying the grass and the lighting here and there...


Here's some close-ups before it get's the coup-de-gras...







and here is the finished piece
after painstaking washes of sepia,blending the mustard
with the other colors to get a soft lighting and such..
It's a day scene and i wanted it softer than the Invocation piece
so i held back and didn't add any white or cream hi-lights....

Here it is...
This is the most accurate shot for color
"Visit of the Sun"
acrylic and cel-vinyl on masonite
16x20


i had a spare Monkeyman frame around,so i framed it!


Here's some close-ups of the final painting






Thanks again fer a'visitin and saying "Aloha!"

Step one - just glob on some colors and smear it around
Step two - turn it into a gorgeous painting
Step three - make it look easy

Kinny, have we seen your scooter piece yet?

Another Quickie Posting before work!
Hope y'alls had a happy Fourth!
Spent 1 day over at Queen Kamehameha's in her lovely saltwater pool
and the rest of the time
was spent as a hermit
celebrating the holiday
safe in the art-bunker!

WestADad-Glad you enjoy these ocular treats!
They're very high in Calories,so view with caution,Chris!

Mike!-you pretty much summed it up...
i just use more analogies and adjectives!
Yes! You've seen my scooter piece(s)
i didn't do one with a scooter
cause there are none in the world i paint in....
"the Cannibal King's Dinner"
was made especially for that show

and this
"Dream of the Agiba Skullrack" will be keeping him company!

And ,to support the theory that
the Squeaky Wheel DOES get the Grease
i have a more involved step-by-step/progress
on this new piece

Sneaks!-No problemo art-brother!
Man! We gotta hook up for a weekend artjam someday!

Here's a new piece I'm creating for the lucky 13 Tiki Highway event in a few weeks at Don's....
Figgered i might as well get ONE new thing done
and then it's off to a crapload of projects and commissions
some Tiki
some not...

start with a 16x20 piece of masonite
and just pencil in your picture


(this one i just went for it-basing it on a few older approaches i had created for some huts)

Here's a close-up of the pencil..
Daddy likes it rough.


Lay in some olive in the vegetation areas....


Add some lighter green,a happy limey color
to establish some light hitting some planes...
and start washing in a mud-grey/hazel-ish for the wood
and washes of mustard for the hut....


close-up!


start laying the hazel over the hut to get some shadows and layered looks


ZOOM IN!


work more brown in for shadowing
this will be the lighter shadow as i will be adding a burnt umber later
Started on the blue-going in there with washes of color
the raw masonite just soaks it UP!


More More More of it and here is where i am ,as of last night..


it's gettin there...




That;s it! Gotta get to the ol' dayjob!
Thanks for visitin!

Awesome Ken! Love the Cannibal King's Dinner! And those process shots on the new one are great. I love when artists post these because no two work the same way...offers tons of insight into the process!

" didn't do one with a scooter

"the Cannibal King's Dinner"

I was confused until I looked at the official Call to Art
"works combining Lambrettas *and* Tikis are heavily weighted but not required"

Now I get it!

The new hutt is kickin' butt!

Sound like LLT jealous of GROG' sexy bald pate and fanny pack. GROG buy LLT a fanny pack so LLT can carry his drawing tools around also. LLT probably not look as good as GROG with a shaved head, so sorry GROG not able to do anything about that. You'll just have to keep paying for hookers.

talked to Joe (ElroyArtSpace) and explained that to him when he asked me to participate....
I'm not a car/vehicle guy at all... they don't have that technology there....Travel is by foot/bird/or raft...
Tho i did a few Big Daddy Roth style tees back in the 90's for Rusty Surfboards when i worked there,but that was it....not my thang.....
Let the Toe and those other scenesters paint them...not me.
