HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY TIKI TRIBE!
Beachbumz - hey dood! Yep that 's Dales' 32 coup - I finally got around to doing this painting.

Here's the latest
tikigodz ~ Well the idea is Acrylic is a water based paint best applied in washes of color. So, a mono chromatic under painting is only "color"-zed with color washes. Not a whole new painting. But, I'm still learning the tricky use of washes... to much paint, and you are just painting the whole darned thing again, too little, and you don't get enough color.
So;.. my best use so far was on Frankenstein. I changed the colors of his hands and feet only with light wahes of color over fulled rendered under painting,

Hope that helps with that question.
Brad~

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
News flash...

"SPECTRUM 17: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art" has picked the pieces that made it into the next book.
Of the pieces I submitted, they chose "Diga Diga Doo". Volume 17 will be published by Underwood Books and in a borders near you next November. I'm pretty darned excited, it's the 3rd time I got in. Funny, they always pick the really strange paintings! Well... I guess the "fantastic" ones. eh?

Here's what I did last night on "Faster Than Disaster". Still on the monochromatic under painting. I hope to start laying in color this week end.

Tiki Bar - open for business... I was listening to the new Brian Setzer Album "Songs from Lonely avenue" and really got into the noir feel ... I may leave out a lot of color, and keep it moody.
Still thinking about it...

Here's a big warm Kona sunset from the back lani last night.
Big Aloha!
Brad~

Hey Brad! Looking great! I would love this piece to keep somewhat monochromatic, kind of like the building above the tiki bar. Whatever you do I'm sure will be great!

Aloha!
zerostreet ~ Thanks, I think the city will be toned down.
Big Kahuna ~ Thanks, let's see... I do want to keep the colors more "real" but a few things will need to "pop".

I didn't get to lay in the color really yet, but I worked out the sky some, and the tiki in the foreground on the right.
Aloha!
Brad~

I think I like the stock look on the radiator better then the web.
Good call Brad, that hand really reminds me of Kirby now.

Atomic Tiki Punk ~ Well I'm not done, and the web grill is coming back, when I get to the car again. right now, I'm laying in the colors and final details from the background and moving to the mid ground then will finish up with the fore ground.

Red Sky... more to come...

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

Here's what I painted on "Faster than Disaster" last night.
Had the idea for the street turning to a wave of lava...

Big Mahalo!

Your work is out of sight, any progress on your postcards for Hawaii. Also, will you have some prints for sale in the near future for your 4 monsters of Hawaii.
