You's guys are too nice. You really help me keep plugging along.

Next up I'm doing an 11x14" velvet that is turning out nicely - it just has to dry so I can take a pic.

Robb, your work just consistently blows me away. I can't tell you how mant times I've looked at your paintings just to daydream and get inspired.
You know what would be awesome? Doing one of these as a wall mural. Maybe even painted onto that velvet-y type of wallpaper.
You'd feel like you could just walk into it. Too cool to imagine.
One of your biggest fans,
John

Damn, you guys are too nice. Thanks for the super feedback.

LLT: you gotta big smile outta me with that one - and a chuckle.

Mr PuPu: I'd love to do a big, cool, good-paying (!) mural like that!



Here's the sketch that got me rolling on my new velvet:






This is how terribly the paper I do my sketches on photographs!





This is how much Photoshop work it takes to make 'em presentable!!!



I'll get a progress pic on here soon.

When my budget allows, I will definitely be calling on you to create something for Hula Sue's, Robb.
And whatever that ends up being, it will have a place of honor on the wall.

Looks like he needs something to read while he's sitting? there; maybe a copy of Tiki Mag.

I have never been a velvet loving but you have changed my mind with this one, Pastel Tiki 4 - Deepest Jungle. Great work!

Thanks Duddy, the atmo. is the #1 thing I'm going for.



Sorry I've fallen behind with the batch of pastels I've been working on, here's some new stuff:






I've mostly done all-over refinement on this one.






I've refined the peaks of the island. I also got the mast on, with the sail lashed to it. It isn't as dramatic as an open sail, but no sane sailor would weather this storm with an open one.

HEY - I just came up with an idea: maybe I could put a shredded sail on to increase the sense of danger! Foolish sailors about to get dashed against the rocks! Or is that too cliche?






I've just done a simple prow ornament because nothing else in the image has much fine detail and I don't want this to look tacked on. I'm not thrilled with it yet, so it gets played with some more.




Next, I put the sailors on the ship and start to wind this baby down!

Robb, you have to consider the source(s): LLT, LOL, and MDM - obviously you can't trust the opinion of anyone with a 3 letter screen-name You've got to keep going!

You need to give the "Loaf Pincher" a real name so we can refer to him more appropriately. Great work as usual. Speaking of usual, is this a departure from your usual with 2 warm light sources instead of a warm and a cool?

The "Marquesean Canoe of Death" keeps getting better and better.
