Mahalo. Yes, all acrylics. I enjoy the fact that they dry fast, of course having never worked with oils I don't know if fast drying is a good thing or not. I also like that clean-up only takes water, so there's no strong chemical odors.

I haven't been too active lately, work seems to be sapping my energy. After seeing Schmaltz' Marquesan Canoe carving at the "In Search of Tiki" museum show at Forest Lawn I was inspired to paint a canoe full o' rowers. Acrylics, 16x20. Sorry for the bad lighting, the colors are more bright than shown and really pop under a color wheel.

I decided to give the velvet thing a try. I wasn't sure where to buy black velvet for painting, and didn't want to mail order a huge amount in case things didn't work out. I went to Jo-Ann's fabrics and bought a yard of "royal velvet". Let me tell you, there are so many variables when it comes to velvets, I had no idea what to get. I figure I'll try painting on a yard of everything as time allows until I find something that works. This velvet is really plush, and I'm sticking with acrylics for now, as I want to retain some of my comfort zone.

Quick and dirty, just to get a feel. I am not a master of light.
Not very detailed, or large (5x7), just testing the waters.

Thanks for all the positive support! Here's my second velvet painting. I find it hard to get any details on velvet, I think it is more the suggestion of shape than actually providing details. I wasn't able to sketch on the velvet as I normally do on canvas. I tried sketching with a white colored pencil, but it didn't really help things so I just free-handed as best as I could. Maybe I should use chalk? This is a pretty ugly wahine. If nudity is not allowed, please let me know and I'll take it down.


Velvet adhesive-spayed to a piece of bristol board, final size 8x10 (you can make out the edge if looking hard enough). I think I know why most folks use oils on velvet, it was really limiting to try to blend with acrylics and try not to clot up the velvet.

Mang,

i didn't even notice anything amiss about the nose til u mentioned it, and still it isn't bad, alot of the Moai I see have a sorta upturned schnauz.

I think this bas relief turned out GREAT!
Nice one!
