Here's your problem, you're painting with the wrong hand.



Lovin' the moai painting!

The "Master" part I'll buy but who said anything about you being old!!!???

I know that clay artists use all kinds of crazy stuff to get textures, but painting with brocolli is a new one for me! Keep up the good work Robb, It's always good to see new stuff from you.

Thanks again, everyone, for the feedback. Blacklagoon, it was a blast meeting you and your wife. Bill was thrilled with your purchases!


Back to the "Old Master-style" Moai painting:





I used retouching varnish about 10 days ago, which is obvious from the glare.





Believe it or not, the front mountain has been subtley glazed blue.





I'm still trying to build the stone texture and keep missing the mark.





The topknot gets some attention.





The topknot looks fine, maybe I could transfer the style I used on it to the moai to get it working?

Moai-gnificent! Great work Robb. I admire people who can work on a project for months and until they get it right. I think I have ADD, I have to finish a project in a week or so or else I lose interest. That seems to lead to quantity instead of quality.
