Are these new velvets that dark in person or is it just the effect from posting the photos on here?

The one thing I love about velvet paintings is how the colors pop off the canvas because they contrast so brightly with the background.

Are yours more on the darker side?

If so have you thought about adding in more highlights to get a different effect?


I do like your paintings-I like that you are doing more realistic paintings vs. the cartoon drawings you have done in the past. Certainly shows how talented you are tackling both mediums and how you have a great end result.

I was just curious about how the appear in person.

Hi leleliz! Thanks for your comments. I was wondering that too because they look way better and brighter
against the dark bg in person.

I think I've been over-compensating with darkening them in photoshop trying to get the black areas of the velvet dark again thus darkening everything. My camera with/without flash makes it dull and grayish.I Need to ask what others do when they shoot their velvets. So far I can't get them close to how they really look.
Here they are without being fiddled with. Is that too blown out? Everyone's screens are different of course.
Thanks again!

Yup those look great!
NOW I can really see them and the contrast is a lot more visible. Not sure if it is my computer that was causing them to be so dark but regardless I am diggning them even more.

Great paintings and thanks for the adjustment!

Cheers leleliz! Great name by the way!
If it's that much better now, then I don't think it's your computer.
Just my lack of photoshop skills.
Plus I suck at photoing velvet!
Thanks for the tip!

Aloha!

Just returned from the gallery with a few snaps.
Come check it out if you can. Everyone's work looks
great and Olivia's new Bettie's are amazing. Also, there are
never before seen Bunny Yeager photos of Bettie that are
classic.

So these are pretty much my first attempts on velvet.
Looking back I can't believe I did them for a gallery show.
But, I usually run before I walk for better or worse.
I'm kinda happy with them. Didn't know what to expect.
Link at Frame Fetish did an awesome job with the frames!
Thanks Link! You are the man!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments as I ventured into the
dark side!

How much does a custom frame like that cost? They are absolutely beautiful and really compliment your fantastic paintings. Awesome all the way around!

Betty's looking fine as ever! It makes me want to mess with black velvet. I wonder how enamel will behave on velvet????

Aloha!

Thanks for the encouraging words Robb! I've got
velvet fever and I think I like it!

Cheers Mr. Pupu Pants! Best name ever! Link at
framefetish.com charged me $200 each. I provided the
leopard fabric and he did the rest!

Hey Sam! Thanks man! Don't know how velvet and enamel
would mix, but if anyone can make it sing, you can!

Thanks to all who came out for the Bettie Page show!
Check it out if you can. It's on til May 29th.

Many Mahalos!

Aloha!

Now that I got those two Velvet Bettie's done
for the Bettie Page show, I can get back to practicing on some
more velvet vahines. Learned a lot from those two pieces.
I did one with acrylic and the other in oil. Needless to say
I put the acrylics away. Me likey oil way better!
I bought two different kinds of velvet to see the difference.
The Bettie ones were on velvet upholstery and this one here
is on Cotton Velveteen. I like the Velvet upholstery way better,
so I'll just buy that from now on. Got a few yards of the velveteen
so might as well use it though. Maybe try and push it since I'm just
playin around.

Mahaloz for lookin!

1rst Progress pic on velveteen...
