My first impression was that the black was on top of the color and was scratched off to make the design. The technique is called sgraffito in ceramics, not sure what it would be called in painting.



That's a good idea! There's scratchboard, which is india ink over a white clayboard I have an illustration on scratchboard up at my tikitower.com gallery.

Concurrently working on both of these...did a bit of work on Lester. Got some encouragement from some of the folks at Mai Kai who saw it on Facebook. They seemed to love it so that helped with some of the frustration I've been having with it. And I'm almost done with the cigar box....adding a few final touches, mainly of black. I really am enjoying working on this and hope to do many more soon!

Here are some pics!

Ha! Thanks Mike, and no....this box contained "Cuban Coronas" straight out of the Dominican Republic! But they were smoked up before I acquired the box!

Well, after almost 3 months, Lester is done! I'm still working out a title....here he is!



If anyone is interested in viewing my steps, they are in order on my website. Just follow the link below:

Also, I've recently completed some non-Tiki paintings, including a grown up Charlie Brown and Alice In Wonderland's The Hatter. Those can be viewed at my zerostreet site at the link below:

Congrats Robert! Great job all the way around. Nice little details like the reflections in the window. Now what's the next project?

PS that Hatter dude looks pretty creepy!
