Hey Brad!
The colors look waaaaay cool! I'm a sucker for greens! This colorup looks pretty swell! How do you do those, they look computerized,or do you just layer the colors on top of one another on paper with paint? The yellow in the last piece didn't really distract from the shark, it almost continues the pathway's vibe.The sky on the first one had that drama of a sunset going down for the evening,and the white of the shark and him being in the foreground captured your attention right away! It's little details like that one never notices during, but after.Your artist instincts just take care of it! Can't wait to see how you progress on this one!

Those cards need to be finished pronto...you would sell a ton of them here. I'd buy 2 sets - one for the wall and one for play. Looking forward to progress on the new guy.

I just heard from Christian - Mystic tiki painting #4 (the Ghost Shark Painting) is going to be in the Spooky Luau art show this Oct 7th! It's first public showing and up for sale! I'll also put in some of my original production drawings of "The Creeper" from the film "Jeepers Creepers".

Freddi, sure, let me see whats in the old sketch book. I think that might be on tracing paper though. I'll let u know.
Slow start. Here's the sky started...

Hmmm those colors look not even close to the color sketch.
Oh well, more later alligators.

Hey Brad!
Faster! Faster! Don't worry about deviating from the colors,that's why painting's so fun! You make the rules! How boring is it to do a study and then do a painting EXACTLY like it? So now you can surprise us whilst surprising yourself! Can't wait to see your Ghost Shark Painting in the flesh!

Squid, thanks! I'm in awe of your sculpts!
Here's the sky, mostly filled in.

I'm going for that sunset that I saw last Friday. I was driving home, and the sky was all purple and orange.

Hey, I had a reeeally busy day at the Tiki Shark office, and then get on line and read this? Just what I needed - A good laugh! Thanks Grog. But, take a gander at this 1950's paint by number...

Not bad! More later 2 nite...

Okay, I softened the BG clouds, and roughly filled in the "Snaky yellow/orange clouds (that I swore I wouldn't be putting in this painting. Sheesh!) It's a really really garish purple-orange-tropical-eye-bender of a sunset. It's overpowering the canvas, but, I think, when the dark blue/green foreground elements come it they will be strong enough to fight against it. (fingers crossed). (Nothing too subtle about this one, that's fer sure.)
~And It was all done while listening to coconut wired! I got so into them I listened to podcast #2 five times in a row! Thanks Chongolio ~ Uh Oh, sorry about the miss spelled name Chongolio!

Here it is after I finished the clouds. I wanted to blur the sunset to help push it back. Then I roughed in the far palm trees.
