Thor, Aloha! THANKS! That's big praise coming from someone as good as you! I hope to make it over to Oahu and see your cool Thor Store soon - I hear it's Tiki heaven! Bambooben, I know where that church is! It's just down the road. (I suppose if you throw old bones off the side that's a scared spot that could lead to supernatural porblems... hmm sounds like another cool painting idea.) What time is good for eel feeding? Matt - Thanks, er...I think.


So, still not to the color glazes yet. I'm getting the fishes rendered, and doing something with the gold coins. But I may have made too many coins...I mean how many gold coins could have came outa that chest! I gotta go in and create some sandy sea floor.
Thanks for watching, Aloha from the Big Island!

I think is the best one of this series by a long shot, and it's not even finished yet!
Can you explain to us painting philistines what colour glazes are and what you're going to do with them? Is it some sort of translucent tint you're going to lay over the top of certain areas?

If you imagine that the chest belongs to Scrooge McDuck then that amount of coins is appropriate. Actually I think there would be more but that works for me.

Great painting!

--------------------------
To the right of the lil' Blue Church is a Hai'au (sp??)
( sacred surfing temple) And, to the right of that is Hale' Miller aka Doug Miller's Hut who owns the Kona Club, Thalasa and the Mallard all up in the East Bay, mainland. We were there last May, Bamboo-ing the inside of his hut and fed the eels morning noon and night. All left overs went to the eels! When they're hungry, they will go nuts! Average size were about 2-3' long. A few were 4-6'! Crazy!! Makes you think twice about sticking your hands into the tide pools!!

p.s. Your paintings rock!

aloha TC! It's been a busy last couple of days, so I didn't have a Lot of painting time.
Paipo - Thanks, yeah it gonna be a color tint. I've read where it helps give the painting an "inner glow" I've never tired it before and I just hope it doesn't give it a "inner crapy-ness". I actually went to the local art store (there's only 1 in Kona) and looked for a book about how to do it. No luck! I'm gonna have to wing it!
Bora Boris - Thanks, Once again you hit me funny bone dead on! It might have been the sunken ship of the dreaded pirate Scrooge McDuck, fer shure!
RevBambooBen- You know, this may sound stupid, (but it's true) when I paint I use you as a standard. I always keep the thought in the back of my mind "Is this painting good enough to be hanging in one of those fantastic Hawaiian masterpiece rooms by Bamboo Ben?" So thanks for the high bench mark you've given me.
I'm looking to get some painting in later today.
Aloha from the Big Island

Wow Brad! That whole thing just took on a complete underwater hue. It looked really golden before and now it all looks very much underwater. Was that the last step with the glazes the trick or was it just the camera playing tricks? This one came out lookin' really really bitchin' Color glazes!! I can't keepup with all these techniques you cats are pulling out of your magic bags.

Epic kung fu mang,
Chongolio

Sorry everyone, I know it's been slow going.... but it anit done yet!

I was researching the whole "color wash over the under painting thing". I couldn't find much info on a painting process that's supposed to have been around since the 1400's! I must just be a bad net-surfer. However, I did find some info on Pooch's web site. He does these GREAT paintings using this process. He suggested working a mid tone wash over the under painting, then if needed, work out into the shadows and and highlights. I tried this and promptly I screwed up the process by getting too opaque. Pooch has a more subtle hand than I do it seems.

Then I found this description from Schorr " ... a detailed monochromatic underpainting in raw umber. after this is completed I than start working my "comic book colors" over this using the lightest washes of color in the dark shadow areas and the heaviest of opaque whites for highlights."

So I tried with a bit more success. Here's sort of what I did: It seems that the under painting is worked up form dark to light. Then, the washes are worked from a highlight (not the brightest, but say upper middle values) down to the shadows.

Then Ken Ruzic gave me some cool advice about working it up veeerry slowly in many many layers. the kind of art that takes way too much time in this day and age, but is great if you are a 14th century Flemish painter working in a cottage with no TV.

All these approaches helped, but none seemed to get me there yet. I guess now comes the practice it till you get good at it part.

So, basically, I still don't know what I'm doing, but here's what I got thus far.

Some blue worked into the Tiki's shadowy bits.

Here's a detail of the barnacles on the Tiki's butt.

I'm still amazed by the tiny details that you put in your paintings that give it so much more depth. Now about the sn-eelů
