Great piece Brad! When it could be finished, you manage to kick it up another 10 or 15 levels!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Thanks Sam, I always try to push each piece up past where the last one reached. So, now I'm totally getting into rendering these strange exotic flowers... or are THEY the aliens? Hmmm... anyways, finishing this week end! Flowers, stars, and smoothing out some of the beach sand. And some more ghostly lights in the Hale.

more to come...

Have a great Saturday!
B~

I love it!

Brad -have you ever put any of your paintings under a color wheel to see the effect?
With all that color I bet this painting would just POP!

Uh-huh I love it. I'm inspired now to start a canvas..Thanks

LLT~ Mahalo Kenny! Hey I hear the rent on that mysteriously Hale is pretty reasonable... of course, no doors and windows and ghostly lights bobbing through all night long. Still, a very nice ocean view.
Meheadhunter ~ Thanks, yeah, funny how little dots suddenly read as a star field and push the sky way way back. I'm happy you dig it.
Babalu ~ Big praise coming from a such a talent as yourself - THANKS!
TikiG ~ Big Mahalo! I'm so glad I can be an inspiration. A few years back, seeing other artist's work on Tiki Central got me started on painting!
OK, had a few days recovering from the intense long hours of finishing up the last piece... now on to the next idea.

Sketch for "Jungle Witch" ... sort of a toy like take on it.

Then a bit more animated... and her conjuring up a magic potion.

Then, stepping back a tad to show more of her "band" as they jam on the beach while she makes her magic brew. Plus a few other folks in the neighbor hood looking in from the back ground.
Some more sketching till it's ready for the canvas.

Aloha from the Big Island!
B~

TD~ Thanks, sorry there was a no posting period for a while. I was getting caught up on some day work.

Here's what's up on the new painting. Worked on the sky a bit. Doing warm light from the sun (some where above the picture plane) hitting the tops of the clouds. So I mixed yellow into white for warm highlights, then shaded down to some burnt umber, then a touch of purple. Finally the under belly of the clouds are tinted blue, being the cool shadows opposite the warm light source. At least that's the theory...so far...

Common now, painting indivdual grains of sand. That's a little bit too much

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
little lost tiki ~ Big Big big Mahalo! Kenny, you are huge boost of artistic energy, like a can of Red bull for my creativity! Thanks Ken!
Big Hodad-dy Reid ~ Oh you are like the "ghost of unfinished art projects past"! Yes I know I still have to finish "The Wanderer", but right in the middle of it I realized I didn't like the whole lighting scheme, and it need a serious re-think on the light source. I need to make it a sunset, (like all my work right now) and I didn't have the mental metal to repaint it yet. I will. Also I think I got a little intimidated at each time I looked closer at the classic romantic painting I'm base-ing it on. So, I need a few canvases to get up to the level of rendering where I think I can do it justice.
Meheadhunter ~ Thanks, octopuses are very interesting. Like alien life forms right here on earth. Drum circles on da' beach are great fun and I've been in a few. Hope I can get that energy captured in the painting.

latest sketch - worked out who/what each tiki creature in the magic circle is. balanced out the back ground, and got a more witch-y look for the Jungle Witch.

Mahalo from the big Island~
B~

Drum circles are great fun...

I'm really likin' the theme to your new painting....
Music ....The Universal Language
It will be really nice watching this painting progress!!
