Vibrant colours and tight designs. I'm not always keen on the bright "Tiki modern" style but I dig these. They look like they'd make good tattoos!
PS do you work in an art store?

Artard,
great work!
And your collection of inks is enviable...What is your favorite?
Do you hold that bamboo whilst painting it? I just used a lazy susan
for painting a decanter and it went by so fast! Thanks for joining TC
and sharing your work!

HOLY TIKI ARTWORK!!! Those are really awesome. I also like the vibrant colors and the tikis have great personalities. The board is particularly nice. You got talent!!!

thanks, i've only been painting off and on for a few years now so i've been trying a litle bit of everything i'm still getting the feel of how each works. as far as watercolor i like luma liquid it's pretty easy to work with. i'm kind of a freak with art supplies i buy stuff i havent even used yet.......yea, i'm weird, but i figure it will be there when the urge hits. also i just held the bamboo i tried painting it sitting up stright but it felt more comfortable laying at an angle.
