The stove is a Frigidaire Custom Imperial Flair - helluva name, huh.



Here's an oil sketch on canvas I did a while back:




Sorry I didn't take any pics of this being painted, but I did it at DaddyKatz during a Kruze-In, and forgot all about it.

THANKS, MUCHACHOS!



Wildsville man requested I do another TIKI VIGNETTE 2 for Caliente with a difference: that it have the official flower of Palm Springs.

I'm waiting to find out what that flower is, but limited time meant that I had to start the painting ASAP, and add the flower later.

Since I've shown this painting being done earlier, I'll just show some highlights.







This painting is tough to do for lefties, so here is my technique for making up for my limited ability with my righ hand.






Vasari's Video Blue is the best color on my palette for velvet. It is abolutely gorgeous.






This is most of the painting roughed in.



Another 3-5 coats, plus the flowers, and this'll be in the bag.

GROG suggest you put it in a frame when finished, rather than in a bag. That way more people can see it and enjoy it.

Grog - hopefully plenty of people will see it at Tiki Caliente 2.

Tiki Shark - Doing these series paintings can be painfully repetitive, but I'm trying to evolve this one. I think it'll look nice with Rory's flower suggestion.

zerostreet/tikigodz - thanks!




Here's the pics Wildsville Man sent me of the Palm Springs flower:










Here's my exploratory first brushstrokes:









This is a couple of days later after the paint dried enough to get more to stick:





I'm trying to keep the flowers impressionistic and mostly in shadow so that they don't take over the main subject. I think the painting is done, but I have to look at it after it dries and I brush off the chalk dust.

I have no idea how you do what you do Robb but it is awesome to see your paintings come to life on velvet.

This one is going to be beautiful!
