Swamp Fire, Isle Conch, Hewey, thanks so much!

Here's the sketch for Mystic Tiki #9 "the Sunken Tiki".
This one's also a 16" x 20" canvas. The reason it's this size as the fella who commissioned it requested a smaller piece. We all don't live in vast halls with huge walls, as all artist's wished everyone did. But, I'm totally cool with it. Let's see now, where's my magnifying glass...

Aloha from the Big Island!

Hey TC hope everyone had a great holiday! So, this afternoon, we said a fond "aloha" to our X-mas guests, as they left the Big Island, and I could deflate the air mattress and get my art studio back into being a .. art studio.
I got the sketch ready to be gawked at while I re-sketch it onto the canvas. To do this I just put a piece of tracing paper over it and draw four lines on it to break it up

But, as I sketched it out, I wasn't paying attention and realized I screwed up and didn't leave enough space for the foreground. One of the things I like most about this composition was the foreground."DOH!"

So, I grabbed the gesso and painted over it.

Let's start this again, with a more careful eye...

I'm scared of snakes, even if it is a sea snake. Other than that I'm looking forward to seeing the progress. I only wish I had the time to create as much as you.

Sea snake venom is more toxic than the venom of land snakes...In fact Yellow Bellied Sea Snakes have the most toxic venom of any snake. There is no known antivenom for their bite. They are close relatives to the cobra and are totally adapted to marine life: they have modified lungs to help them maintain buoyancy and to remain underwater for a long time.
It is said that sea snakes can open their mouths wide enough to bite a man on the thigh. If provoked, the sea snake may become very aggressive and persistent, especially during the mating season in the winter.

Boo!

Brad I love the fish lei! What kind of fish are they? Will you incorporate shadows so the fish look raised above the surface of the submerged tiki?

Nice info about sea snakes, but it's an eel guarding the treasure. So, tell us a bit about eels.

There are Freshwater and Saltwater Eels.

A young eel is called an elver.

A traditional East London food is jellied eels.

A giant moray eel ate Louis Gosset Jr. in the 1977 film The Deep

Cool piece TSA, there's alot of interesting characters populating this composition. Although painting smaller can be faster, I personally find it more challenging with painting detailed shapes and what not. I'm sure it's no problem for you. This composition has alot less neg. space than your last couple o' paintings which also makes for some cool variation within the series and also harkens back to your first painting in the series. Speaking of variety, are you going to do some horizontal/landscape formats in this series? Keep up the good work!

Hodadhank, OMG! I'm never setting foot in the friggin ocean again! It's full of frickin snakes! Bora Boris, Thanks for the info, I think I feel somewhat enlightened. Nice Grog vs the eel! Frostiki, I'm still working out the light sources, but I hope I stick the shadows where they should be... if not tell me before it's too late.
Grog, actually though, it's not a true eel. But a hybrid sea snake and eel. A sneel.
Let's see if I can get a color test done tonight...

I went back and forth on a color scheme. Finally I hauled out my boxes from the garage, found the all important Greg Hildebrandt and Todd Schorr art books to consult. And for good measure I even hauled out the holy grail of Josh Agle. Finally I picked one. Funny, it's like the same color scheme I had on the last one!
