As I mentioned several posts back, I have been itching to do some acrylic painting. I've been working digitally for quite some time now so acrylics will be like starting over. But I have gotten much encouragement from two friends, one of which just joined TC and you can see his great work here:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=36685&forum=21&2

...and at hukilau. And also a few posts up Brad Parker gave me some very uplifting comments....so here is a very early stage acrylic painting of a Maoi:



This is a piece of pine approx. 11x7.

Here's the latest on my Mermaid illustration. Worked on the tail a bit (I know there's a joke in there somewhere ). Have been kinda busy with Tiki Tower related things and haven't had much time for illustrate lately.

Also I would love to hear comments on the acrylic painting I have begun which you can see one post above this one!

Nice acrylic work.

I think it looks pretty cool as is, nice colors and contrast. Maybe needs a bit more detail on the far moai, but I'd call the front one done.

Thanks BT! I am happy with the results I achieved on the foreground moai but I do intend to do more work on it. At the very least to practice acrylic painting.

So I'm working 2 pieces concurrently, the mermaid which is digital and this, my first painting since school.

I feel this is really a study to find my way with acrylics, and I figure it is about halfway done. So far I am quite happy with it. Still want to add details in the grass and fix the moai's face and work the clouds. Would love some comments!

Be sure to introduce yourself when you come to the Hukilau. Its always nice to meet other local artists. Bring some stuff with you and maybe we can work out a trade?

Here's the Moai painting after a bit more work. The horizontal lines you may see at top and bottom are the wood grain.

sweet detail on all that wild Rapa nui grass!
SheesH!, I'm a nut for painting details, but I am impressed on your rendering of every blade!
Great work!
