So does the missus let you bring in a model for these paintings or do you just have to wing it? I was doing a small nude sculpture and I had to buy a cheap Barbie to use as a model

what a coinkydink! I too am using a cheap Barbie as a model!
Actually, I'm working from different reference materials. From
old postcards and pictures to my own photos. The cartoony stuff
is made up but I might use some references for poses, BG's, plants, etc...
The missus is quite an exotic beauty so hopefully I can get her to don
a grass skirt, lei, and a pareo too!

Speaking of pareos, here's my next progress sketch shot. If I do a velvet
of this it won't be this colorful. Just playing around...
Mahalo for looking!



Nearly finished....

Looks great, very similar to the last one. Good luck with the velvet, it seems daunting.

Hi Iokona!
I LOVE how your latest pieces are turning out
They are so rich and glowy.
I can't wait for you to start on your first velvet!
Ok... I'll pose for you, but only if you pose for me in
a leopard loincloth ala tarzan:-)

Ummm, wouldn't this sort of thing be better as a PM? TMI!!!
I didn't mind the mental image of Hula Lula in a pareo, but Iokona in a leopard loincloth is just too much!

Iokona Ki'i-

I don't see anything about selling them. Are they for your own enjoyment? They would be a great addition to any Tiki Lounge/Room/Bar.

Thanks for sharing them. They are outstanding.

Craig

the last few years. Forgot how fun it is!

Been working on a few Velvet Paintings. Amazing medium! Not ready to show yet.
Don't think I want to show progress shots since I'm just starting out and am
in the dark - pun intended - Anyways, here's another sketch in progress.
I think I want to do a velvet version of this.
Mahalo for looking!

This last one is especially nice. I like the close up and that she's doing something - not just standing or looking straight out. Very nice proportions. Ready for the velvet!
Hey, I think you guys are cute with the posing and the Tarzan stuff! Make hay while the sun shines.
And it was great to meet you two at the Mayflower on Saturday! See you again soon, I hope!

Thanks Kiki Von Tiki! It was a pleasure meeting you too! Still
don't know how you changed into that dress so quickly!
Great purses! Looking forward to seeing your other creations
as is Claudette.

Let me know if you'll be making some Tarzan styled threads too!


Next progress shot....
