you're nailing that velvety goodness on that cigar box,pal!

Good idea to grab a new piece and not get stuck in the monotony of woodgrains...
i had the same dilema with bubbles this week...
Always good to step away and use that energy elsewhere...
re-vitalizing!

BOTH are looking great,ZT!




Thanks Ken! You nailed it too! That wood grain work was burning me out. I hope to be ready to jump back on that when I am done with the cigar box.

Almost done with The Sentinel! Trying to fine tune the Tiki and all the detail stuff! I'll be painting this one at the Pines Arts Fest this weekend in Pembroke Pines. If you are in the area drop by and say hi!






LOVE IT!
You are really getting into the light reflecting off of real looking textures! The Best part of painting tikis!
Out standing piece. LIGHTING IS SOO ON! And, you are smartly framing your tikis with island foliage. ?It's the way all the big selling artists out here do it. DAMN U R REALLY GETTING GOOD!
... and (geek-fan-question) "The Sentinel" is one of my favorite Judas Priest Songs, did you listen to it over and over while painting?

Thanks so much for the kind words Brad! I try very hard, especially so on this piece, to concentrate on the light and how it affects everything around it. And I know you are probably tired of hearing this from me, but I so appreciate your encouragment a year or so ago to do the painting thing! It was those words and the encouragement of 2 painter friends that got me to try and I'm so happy I did!

As to Judas Priest, I haven't really listened to them in many years. I was into the hard rock and metal quite sometime ago but my musical tastes have mellowed over the years. About the heaviest thing I listen to now is Wilco! And I tend to be listening to some podcast or other while I paint!

Thanks again!

Robert

The Sentinel is coming along just fine!

Moonlight Offering has that moody midnight moon-glow I just can't get enough of.

Thumbs up from a fan and admirer of your art. Always.

Thanks for posting!

Almost done with The Sentinel! Just have to work the torches and the mountains a bit more. This pic was taken outside so it is a bit more true to the colors.

Oh, in case you missed it, in the post above is a link to a trailer I made for Tiki Tower. Check it out if you can!

It's all good Robert; love the greenery on The Sentinel, the trailer is great - nice to see all the boys together, and Max is one handsome devil!
