Aloooooha Tiki Central~
Moondance~Thanks so much, and thanks for playing the surf tunes!
Ravenne~Thank you, finished? Oh yeah, check back in two months...
teaKEY~Well, you are looking real close, but did you notice I altered the sketch? And, when I transferred it to the canvas, I altered it again. I left the mug blank, because I'm totally redesigning it. I'll be doing some close up paper and pencil studies that I'll post.
LLT~Water soluble pencil? Wow, I gotta check that out! Thanks Tiki paintin' buddy!
Grog~Hmm, yeah, I'm going to make sure the 'cliff face' looks alot more Moai like when I get to painting it. Hey, I couldn't count all the tikis in a Ken Ruzic painting! Heck, I couldn't even get the number of water falls correct!
Frostiki~Yeah, it's started... zipping along... still fudging around with the sky...
tiki Duddy~ Mahalo! You're pretty great your-own-self!

So, I'm on the sunset. I got this thing going where I'm working up from dark shades to lightest shade. I'm hoping it will do much the same as the under painting.


Hey, if anyone's interested, I posted some info on the reproductions of "the Moon of Manakoora" that I'm doing over in the marketplace.

Mahalo from Kona!

Woo-ee! Straight into colour! It will be interesting to see how you find it compared to the underpainting.

Aloha TC!
Hewey~Thanks, yeah, straight into the color! Layers and layers of color....I've still working on the farthest part of the sky, smoothing it out. Hiding brush strokes seems to be about using circular strokes, and many layers of semi transparent tones. And, like , always one more layer than you think you gotta slap down.


Getting pretty smoothed out. Sort of. Still have to create the transition tween the orange and the purple bit.

Hey! Did you see the Ad in Tiki Magazine for the art show? Now it's real! So guess I better quick goofing off and get this thing moving so it's done by November!


Hope everyone has nifty plans for the Labor Day Weekend. My plan is to get some painting done!

Mahalo!

Blend Blend Blend my Tiki Painter Friend!
This one is gonna be so AWESOME!!!!
I kin feel it!
And the best part is that we all get to see it in da flesh at the Bali Hai soon!
Blend Blend Blend...
Acrylic Flow medium might help,but it FEELS a little different from your approach-like brushing with syrup instead of water,kinda.....but the semi-transparent/watering down and blending of the acrylics is probably the approach that'll yield the Parker magic,as your hand is already used to doing it dat way! Looks like i might need to bring you an Artist Care Package in November so you won't have to hunt for these elusive materials on the islands! I hope you get the most of this weekend and just run yourself ragged with the Paint Fever!

Aloha TC~
Er.... I have come to the conclusion that I might be crazy. I painted the sky all day yesterday. Working, and shading, trying to get a better transition. Then, last night, I thought I hit on a cool looking technique. Reworked the painting that way. In the light of the studio last night it look interesting. However in day light this morning...er...I dunno. And, I'm no farther along! (ARRGH!)


It looks worse now. Right?
"Can you say Obsessive artist?"

Anyways.... perhaps today will be more productive!

AND... as if I didn't have enough to obsess over and go kooky... can someone go to my MY SPACE page and figure out the puzzle that Sea Jay posted on my comments? Please? I'm just not great at those things, but not knowing what it says is bugging me!

Big Aloha from the Island of misfit art-nuts!!!!!!!!!

Airbrush seems to blend pretty good.

Or working wet into wet.

ALOHA!
JPMARTDOG~Hey, thanks man! Howz the big picture coming along that You are doing?
GROGGY~Wet? Paint?! Wait a minute... I better research this! Actually, it helped thinking about your suggestion while I slapped the canvas. Dry shading, wet shading. I think I'm just starting to understand what these techniques really are.
JENTIKI~Ding! Ding! Ding! Yes, you've solved Sea Jay's puzzle! (Quite a poetic answer too, the ol' puzzle master must be getting all artistic in his old age!) And, thus you are the FIRST winner of the Tiki Shark/Sea Jay special secret puzzle contest! Your special secret prize will be mailed to you sometime this coming week. (Jentiki, please message me a mailing address for you, k?)

Okay-doekay. Here's the fruit of 8 hours of brush labor yesterday...

Hmmmmmm...

Yes Yes, MUCH better.

(??!!?!?!)

Hope you're having a grreeat laborious day!

Aloha from the Kona-side!

Aloha TC!

Jentiki~I should get it mailed out to you this week.
jpmartdog~Yeah, it's gonna be a great prize!.... as soon as I figure out what the special secret prize is! (I got a good idea, no worries!)
Ravenne~As long as I don't get snowed in here I think I'm safe. Taking those breaks down to the beach helps smooth the brain waves.
Sooooo here's da sky now.

Looking a little bit more like a sun set.

Well, at least a "Tiki Shark" sunset!

Back to the regular work week... hope u all had a nice labor day week end!
Aloha!

Is there any other sort? If you're not obsessive about your work you're probably in the wrong business! I kinda wish I could switch it off sometimes though...

Nice sky Brad!
