tikilale - yeah things move at the speed of lava here, or at least I do.
Stiki Tiki - Cards, oh yeah... gotta get back on dat too!
Hewey - I'm not sure about the whole underapinting thing yet, this is the first one I tried. So, far I think it did help a bit figure some things out...
LLT - Water is completely weird from below! It even looks different in most of my scrap photos, so I just went with what I though would look cool.
Paipo - gosh that's a cool photo! It makes me really want to go diving!


more coming,
Aloha from the most remote active volcanic island in the world...

The underpainting is great, I like the way the surface light is coming through. I just have to keepsaying, it's an eel not a snake. Eel not snake.

Hey Tiki Shark - very cool piece. I love the use of a hammerhead too. Those things are outright bad and kitschy....

I can live with a sneel, they are only mildly creepy. The details in your close ups are great, very smooth transitions. Nice and subtle colors. Thanks for posting, you help keep me motivated.

Thanks everyone.
Tonight it rained for the first time since I moved here, then the full moon came out. The air smelled so amazing. A lot different than LA. I just stood there on the lani, breathing the air and listening to the waves. I had to force myself to go back inside and paint. I'm not sure when the shock of being in Hawaii is going to ware off, I hope never.


I just figured I didn't put in the wavey light from the surface over the ship. Dare I go back and risk screwing it up by painting them in?

Oh hey, if you go to
www.coconutwired.com, I'm the current featured artist on Chongolio's podcast. He let me pick the band and the song to get played while my art is being shown on that tiny itty bitty i-pod window. I sent many e-mails to my favorite surf band, and secured my favorite track off "The Ghastly One's" latest CD. I listen to coconut wired alot while I paint, and it was totally cool to be a part of it. Thanks Chongolio, and thanks Norman!!

Somemore... something still wrong about that mermaid's face - and I've painted it about ten times, argh!

octopuses are easier than wooden mermaids.

Looking wonderful TSA! Don't bother changing the lighting from above on the shipwreck. The light waves you are thinking of are more common in shallow water anyway.

A suggested solution or your mermaid...

This one is definitely going have to go to GROG. Whoever commissioned it will have to wait for next one.
