Aloha TC!

Paipo~You are so right! I figure being a bit crazy and being an artist are sort of mutual requirements. One only works well in our society if you have the other to go along with it. And, thank god I can make art, cause otherwise I'm too weird to be employable for anything else!

Here's the first layer of the ocean. I think it's gonna be purple to green, with reflected surfaces showing the orange of the sunset.

Still not sure how hot to hit the edges of the clouds. I want it to be a gorgeous sunset, but not to fight too much with the objects that will be in the foreground. Sheesh, on my monitor that last pic looks like crap! It looks much smoother in person. Really. No really!

Thanks for watching!

Hewey, thanks. It's getting there. Here's the latest...

We got guests coming in for the next two days, so gotta vacate my art studio. More this week end.

Aloha from the Big Island!

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
That sunset/sunrise is awesomely delicious! And the waves....it looks friggin real already!
Dude! this piece is gonna shine like turpentine at the TikiMag show! I can't wait to get
reeeeeeeeeeeal close to it and just examine your craftsmanship and hyper attention to detail!
So give us a rundown on wet blending/dry blending and where you used what....are the more solid opaquey blends the dry,and the soft cloudy areas the wet....and the water.....oh the lovely water! I've heard reports of UFO's ...actually USO's (Unidentified submerged objects) actually way down deep and sometimes surfacing,shooting thru the waves and BAM! disaapearing at hyperspeeds into the sunset! Boy! i would love to see that! I WOULD REALLY REALLY LOVE TO SEE SOMETHING LIKE THAT! especially in a tiki themed painting! Dude! Sad to hear about the guests! I hate breaks in the routine....real bummer! Your best bet is to keep on soaking up those
skies-storing them in your retartistic brain and readying them for other paintings! And eat lots of artistic fibre! Novembers comin fast! VROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

I'll have to agree with Kinny The water is amazing! My eyes are having a little trouble focusing today and at one point, it looked like the water was actually moving! Weird, but cool! I'm looking forward to watching this whole piece come to life!

That's starting to look mighty spectacular already. Just like a West Coast sunset!
I'm liking the USO idea - I picture a tiki riding a tattooed shark with a laser beam on its head! The laser beam could be firing at another tiki riding a manta ray, which has missile pods under its wings! What do ya reckon Brad ?

ALOHA!
Paipo, Jentiki, Grog, LLT Hey thanks!
I had a few days off. During the Body Glove snorkel boat trip we took our guests on, we had a "close encounter" with what at first seemed a USO (unidentified submerged Object)! But turned out to be a giant manta ray! Sheesh, I didn't know those critters got THAT big.

So, here's the current brush slappings on da canvas!

Sloowly, oh so slowly is it starting to look like a forbidden Island.

Mahalo!

That wave is looking great! And ooooh, there's a shark! How are you finding it without the underpainting?

Check out the big brain on Brad!

Another painting, already looks amazing, even without the underpainting!
The wave / shark looks amazing! Nice start!
Must be those Big Kahuna burgers! Mind if I have a taste of your tasty burger!

After all, anything I can do to help my art! BTW does your wallet have the initials B.M.F on it?

Aloha TC~
Hewey,Ravenne, Groggy, Howland, and Jpmartdog - thanks so much. It's been busy here at the ol' Tiki Shark Beach Towel ranch, and so not too much time fer painting. Much less munching down juicy Big Kahuna Burgers like a hit man. (Wow, watching that repeating clip made me have the munchies!)

But, I got some design done on the Tiki Mug that will be featured prominently in this painting. ( the one that's floating in the middle of it.)

It's a Cthulhu/Squid god tiki mug. However, I don't think I'm going to use it. At least not in this painting. It would be too much Squid God for this painting. Plus, I want the mug to be something extremely cute and happy. That way it will seem funnier that the evil alien Brain is serving it.

Mahalo!
