The work from Tuesday.

Da Dog. It looks not so much cute, as it does demented, or very surprised to be in a tiki painting. Hmmm, needs work.
LLT - Thanks so much. Yeah, the time frame on this one has slipped. I'm hoping to get this one done mid March. The colors of the sunset will really change the painting. I hope, cause it's really weird painting a sunset in brown! I've been watching the sunsets a lot. I want the sky to go from a electric blue down to a purple on the horizon. With a orange sun. The reflected light of the blue sky will be the fill light on everything. At least that's the plan.
Jentiki -Yep, I'm pretty sure that's what I counted, but Kinny is the Jedi-tiki-art-master, so if he says it's "5" it must be "five"!
Hewey - I know, I can't wait to see what the heck it's gonna look like in color too!
Thanks for watching the paint dry TC!
Aloha~

GROG counted 7 waterfalls in LLT's painting, too. But, GROG see how it can be five as well. It's his "artistic" use of perspective (or lack there of) that is throwing us off.

Wow, you're going to add color to this?!!! Boy THAT should really make it pop!

DAMN THAT LITTLE DOGGY TO HELL!!!!! It will haunt GROG's dreams the rest of GROG's life!!!

I might seem like a dipshit for asking this Brad, but won't acrylics be rather opaque over this exquisitely detailed under-painting? What do you think Ernie? Wouldn't translucent oils be better?

Perro del Diablo strikes my dreams yet again. Thanks for the close-up on the demented pooch. Now I need a drink, and strangely I have a craving for bad chinese food with questionable chicken.

Hey TC!
Groggy~ Glad U dig it! Well, color is happening tomorrow... I think... I hope.
Hodadhank~ I'm going by what I read about Todd Schorr's painting process. Some how he paints with the style of an old master using oils, but he uses acrylics. U do have to be reeeeal careful not to screw up and get too opaque. But u can do it. I did it in the last painting. Sometimes. I think. Actually, I'm not real sure WHAT I'm doing.
Frostiki~Demented pooches and bad chicken, keeping u up? URP! I had a real bad time sleeping last night too now that u mention it! I better just focus and finish this puppy!
Swampfire ~ Sir, as a big fan of your work, I am honored, and jeez... now that your watching...er no pressure on me to not screw up or nothing! Oh well, here's tonight's monochromatic, or as it's also known, "Squid-o-vision" work. I think the under-painting is just about all done, or as done as it's a gonna get. (luv ya' Squiddy!)

Aloha!

WOW!-That's hazy, foggy, dreamy, sleepy looking work there, bro--I love it!!!! The 'haziness' and the slightly askew Rydenesque realism lets one beleive he is actually there with a thin, reddish membraneous glaze on the eyes. HUH?-what the hell did I just say? OK-I'm no art critic but it's still awesome!

Brad did his last painting building up colors in acrylic from an underpainting and it turned out AWESOME, so I'm sure this will be incredible as well. I've never painted in translucent oils, so I couldn't tell you if that would be better or not, but I think what's best for each artist is what medium they are comfortable working with and what will give them the desired effect they are looking for in the finished piece. And, Brad handles the acrylics JUST fine. The good thing about acrylics is that you can add water and dilute them and use them like watercolor and build them up in layers to whatever level of opacity you want, or you can use it straight out of the tube and paint opaque. And if I remember correctly back from painting class in college, there's also a gel medium you can add acrylic to that allows you to build up translucent layers, but I've never used it before. Judging by Brad's past work, I don't think we have anything to worry about (except that damned dog!).

Keep it up Brad, it's looking great so far. I haven't done a serious painting in years, and your stuff is definitely inspiring me to pick up the paintbrush, but unfortunately we're in deadline HELL at work, so I'm stuck drawing Matt Groening's yellow people 'til late in the evening 7 days a week right now. Thankfully, the damned movie comes out in July, so there is an end in sight, but I hope I have a little time off before I have to go back on the series. Maybe I'll come crash with you in Hawaii and do some painting, but not while you have that damned dog there!

(And yes I know it's not typed in GROG-speak, but Hodad asked ERNIE the question)

Here's your thread back Brad.

Ernie - I'll have to investigate this gel that mixes with acrylic to create transparent layers. Are you sure it's not called "water"? Hmmm... Best luck on the yellow cartoon people. I'm one of the many millions waiting for the glorious incredible perfect animated movie in July! Anyways, while your waiting to see color on that damn dog, here's some entertainment from that A-mazing group Don Tiki!

There is a doc. Called The Treasures of Long Gone John (.com) coming out and it shows Todd doing a painting for John sped up. That was the first time that I saw the underpainting used. Don't fully understand it but the clues given out makes sense. Anyways, I'm sure the painting will be tops cause it already is.

Liquitex has an acrylic gel medium that is pretty good....Water works fine too,but the gel medium really seals it in and you can get it in matte/satin/and gloss if you wish...Water's the best way to go as there's no cleanup and I've found a bit gooey-not as smooth as just water...There's also an acrylic and water-based flow improver for blending and such that dries into a nice coating...In Santa Ana about 3 miles from my studio they have a display of the Treasures of Long Gone John(some of 'em including Ryden and Schorr's work) and clips from the movie.I may go check that out this weekend before it goes down...Missed the opening night that had 2 free screenings of the whole movie!
Peas out!

surfnturf ~ "hazy,dreamy,sleepy, haziness"... I totally blame the VOG (volcanic fog) for effecting my work! It's certainly not anything like pacalolo (cough) no way! (cough cough!) And anyone who refers to my stuff as "Rydeesque" is a good friend of mine! Thank you! Ryden's work is so creepy, but exciting, but weird, but sort of hot, but really creepy, but gross, but really an inspiration of mine!
Grog ~ Hey, did you just refer to me as a "serious" painter? Wow! So, can u tell us the big mysterious plot of the movie?
Teakey ~ I gotta see that documentary! Of course the only movie theater around here is not quite an "art house", so I may have to wait for the DVD.
LLT - Thanks for the info, good ol' Liquidtex! Do you use it a lot? And, R we really supposed to be sealing these painting things? And, Please go check out that show, and then do tell!
MTJahuna ~ Yeah, I'm totally in love with the Big Island now. It's one of the most beautiful places on the planet! Do you have a favorite island?
Here's 2 night's work. The start of the sky's color. One of the things I find most challenging is getting a smooth transition of shading over a large area. I actually used a technique of Mr. Gambino's - I used my fingers to help blend the colors together. And it really helped. Thank you Sam!

Thanks fer watching.
Aloha and out.
