Paipo Ė Thanks mate. Itís funny, it is kinda similar to my pastel stuff, but with the background and the properties of the paint it looks so much better. Iíll be doing more in this style for sure I think.

Sam Ė Thanks too The main reason I used one shot is because I had some lying around The problem is I donít have any green or brown at all, so it can be hard painting tiki stuff! Not sure if I will continue painting with the one shot or not at this stage.

Tang couple is looking great, looks vintage!
It reminds me of pastelle the way the texture looks. Didja drybrush: ie use a brush with little paint on it and drag it across the canvas texture?
Anyways sweet piece.

Itís starting to warm up a little down here, so now I can go outside and not freeze my ass off painting or carving outside at night after work (I donít have somewhere I can paint inside, so I do everything under the awning out the back.)


Hi Hewey!
Out here, I've been using the heat as an excuse not to drag my ass outside and work for the last three days. Plus, doesn't it get dark at 4:30 where you are?
Reading that post got me all scared of winter!
Enjoy your summer, Hewey(when it finally arrives, that is) You earned it!
Does this mean it's almost "play in the box because the heat makes us crazy" time?

Buzzy Out!

Sneaky - Yeh the vintage look is cool. And yep, it's drybrushed.

Buzzy - Doesn't quite get dark at 4:30, more 5:30ish. Yeh winter sucks, and it approaches! But I can see the light coming Give it 6 months and I'll be bitching about the heat

Here's a (slightly) better pic of the Tangaroan couple.


And here's my next piece in progress, again stretched canvas. The woodgrain was a happy accident with copper metallic paint and a crappy brush Going to be a hei tiki, in the style I did the Tangaroan couple in.

Hei Hewey!
We got Pepsi Max here finally! Thought of you when I saw it at the store.
Got any progress on the Hei Tiki yet?

I mean, other than the wood looking background...

Buzzy Out!

Oh yeah, I forgot to ask:

After doing the background wash, how do you rough sketch the figure out? It seems that it would be tough to get it right the first time, and it wouold be hard to recreate the background if you laid it out slightly off. Do you use pencil on it? Do you do a bunch of sketches to establish the composition, or just go to it out of what you see in your head?

Thank you for your time
Buzzy

Hey Buzzy! Good to know you got Pepsi Max. Did you get Zaya some? No progress on the hei tiki yet, had lots of other things take my time (like old cars, and my brothers wedding in a couple of days). As far as sketching out - I'm still working out what I'me doing with that. For the couple I just freehanded it and hoped it came out okay. The only reference pic I had was the South Pacific map in the BoT opening spread, with a fingernail size Tangaroan. Not sure what I'll do with the hei tiki. Probably sketch out the design in the size I want, and have that directly next to the canvas as I paint, and hope for the best! I could sketch it with a pinstriping pencil (rubs off with water), but I think it would lose some of it's energy...

1 Shot is a signwriting paint, and is the paint of choice for the majority of pinstripers too.

Here's a tiki painting I did for my girl for Valentines Day. She's into tiki, her fave colour is green, and she loves leopard print Acrylic on canvas.
