Love the creative process steps. Wow, you can't paint out any mistakes so you gotta be sure about your steps the first time! Sort of like artistic tight rope walking.

My painting gazebo.

So the stone doesn't look muddy, I decide to use pure colors in dabs. Excuse the dust.

The reflection on the ocean is the one easy step so far.

This is where I've stopped until I figure out if a palm tree or a canoe goes in the left corner. I know the ocean will need a lot more light, but I'm not sure how I want to do it.

My goal is to make the scene have a romantic feel. It is inspired by Martin Denny's "Exotica," and I want that feel.

The step-by-step is fascinating, Robb! Thanks for sharing the process with us.

You forgot the "don't try this at home" disclaimer.

That Moai is looking very cool and mysterious!
You nailed that moon....
Every brushstroke is thought out
and the weirdest part is sometimes
it isn't what you paint
it's what you don't paint....
You mentioned the word 'negative space'
when we spoke briefly at the Maikai....
with this step by step
i'm beginning to get it!
Thanks Robb for the insight
and all these wonderful paintings!

YEA! thanks for sharing thought process and technique. I love seeing the sketches on the black paper. thats watercolor pencil, Right? I think I already asked that question. Your painting gazebo reminds me of being on safari.

If that's Diamondhead in the background, then the secret location of your moai must be east of Diamondhead, probably on Koko Head. Looking great!

4WDtiki - I wish I wasn't trying this at home, but I have no studio!
littlelosttiki - "negative space" is where I now live.
Sophista-tiki - your memory is excellant Dawn, Derwent watercolor pencils they be.
MadDogMike - the resemblence to Diamondhead is a coincidence, it's kind of a fantasy Easter Island.

Thanks, all.



The distant mountains go in next, this pic doesn't resemble the painting - too much digitalness to the blue.



The beach goes in - believe it or not, this simple beach is about six different techniques combined in layers to give the beach a physical presence.



The moai's final texture shows up nicely here. It is meant to be brand new, without any weathering.

I was wondering if anyone has an idea for a title for this piece? It is of the first night of a newly-erected moai.

This painting is headed to Tiki Freakout, I hope some of you see it in person and like it!



"First Moonrise"

You have definitely caught that romantic feeling of far off Martin Denny Exotica. How about "Moon over Moai".
Anyway I am lovin' the moodiness of all these paintings.

Since he's brand new, how about "First Moonrise". No matter how many thousands of moonrises a Moai sees over a lifetime, his first one is always special.

Great work Robb!
