Thanks Brad, i havent decided on the stars yet, that's something i've been waiting to decide at the end, if it needs the little extra touch i'll definatly put them in there, i just want to make sure i do them right and effective.

I agree it's a great start. I'm no pro but as far as sealing paintings goes I've always used spray on type stuff. About 75% of my paintings have actually been sprayed with engine clear coat! It doesn't darken the work hardly at all. The clear polyurethanes work good as well. There have been a couple times I've sprayed the piece, saw a problem with the painting, painted the correction right over the top of the clear coat and then hit it with a second clear coat. It works.
Keep plugging away.
Cheers.

Matt's right about the clear....Brush on works but test first....
Looking good Duddles!
I wanna live on top of that hill!
Stars are fun!
don't use all white for the stars-use some lt.blue and dulled down yellow...
a fun start is to dip the tip of your finger in the paint-wipe most of it off
then dab it here and there on the canvas-if it's too much just wipe off-then,in a circular motion smear those dabs into a fadey gradation-then when dry,put a dot or cross-if you vary colors of the star and the glow,and alternate between dots and crosses-more dots-you'll start to get a cool easy starry sky..not tooo much tho! less is more!
Stoked this is givin you the painting Fever!

TD~

Getting into the swirling shades of night... good. One other tip, okay two other tips: I got this one from another Tiki Central artist - try shading big areas like skys with your fingers... hides the brush strokes. Hmmmm... guess me and Kenny are telling you to finger paint.

Tip two - remember young skywalker...the light source (aka the fire) has to be brighter than anything else in the painting for it to seem like the actual source of the light.

Looking good... keep up 'da cool work!

Hey Duddy - what media do you like the most? I like the loose brushwork on the Page piece, it's watercolor isn't it?

Hey, Robb~ Thanks Much!
it's actually Acrylic, was a fun little project. learned from it too, of course
i like the acrylic-but i still want to try oil, not to mention Velvet is very interesting aswell, look forward to trying it yet someday

thinking of doing a Jimi Hendrix-same style as Page, and then to finish the little...series, maybe a Jim Morrison

More to come
