Thanks Mike and Sam!
Hopefully my velvets will turn out the same!
Fingers crossed.

Speaking of velvets, a good friend of ours is the wonderful
pinup artist Olivia,
http://www.eolivia.com, who does incredible Bettie Page paintings
among others. She is a fan of our line Fluff, http://www.fluffshop.com, which is how we initially
met many years ago. And, of course we're big fans of her! Well, she saw some of the stuff
Claudette and I have been working on on the side...some posted on TC...and has invited us
to contribute to her upcoming art show celebrating Miss Bettie.
Pretty Cool!...and scary! Especially since it is in May!
And I've never attempted to draw/paint Bettie Page before!
And I'm just starting to learn how to paint on velvet!
And it's gonna be shown along side Olivia!

So I have decided to do a Velvet Bettie with Tiki.
I'm gonna post some sketches and see which one get the
the best response and go from there.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

P.S. I'll post info about the show soon under Cal events!
All I know so far is it's gonna be crazy!

In progress sketch...ran out of paper room...bit dodgy...
...wonky...fugly...but, gotta start somewhere...

Aloha All,

Here is the first progress shot of one of the Velvets
I'm practicing on. This one is with acrylic. The others are
being done on oil. Will post the oil ones soon along with
some more progress pics of this acrylic piece. So far I'm liking oil
better...no big surprise there.

Mahalo for looking.

Mahalo LLT!
Thanks for the encouragement.
Totally diggin the many styles you use to create your art!


I put this one down for a bit while I'm working on some other
velvets, but thought I would post where it's at. Will come back to it
soon. Amazing what you can learn from your first velvet painting.
Mostly, what not to do.

Having some fun though....

Thanks for the encouraging words Mike!
It's Super fun...but one false move and that's all folks.
Very unforgiving.

Here is a practice one in progress before I start for reals with
one I'm doing for a show. Still has chalk lines, will get rid of next.

Mahalo for looking!
