Jumping right into the next one....this is an 18x18 piece of ply. I had sketched out an idea that I loved for this piece and I seem to have misplaced the sketch! So I'm going by my memory of it...we'll see how it goes!

Dusty looks great Robert! The blue wash in the final really makes it POP!

Looking forward to your next.

OOH! the Sentinel!
What is he guarding?
SOMETHING in the water?
you've been nailing the atmospheres lately!
creating that perfect world for these crazy guys!


i just started doing a few pieces on black grounds
Any helpful hints for us who dare to venture there?

i like how you can fade the light into the darkness
it leaves a velvety bleed that is so yummy!
Toe turned me onto black gesso
but black rattlecan also had a cool surface
very smooth...
I've found that it takes the bright colors and hues down their saturation a lil bit...
almost classing up the colors from garish brights to more muted and classy tones!

You have got the fever lately..one after the next!
go boy go!

Thanks Ken! Don't quite know what The Sentinel is guarding but it has something to do with the idea I have (my most ambitious I think!) of a whole sub text for my "Tiki Tower Island" world. Several pages back in this thread I posted a sketch of a map of the island. This is where all my Tiki paintings (with the exception of my Mai Kai painting) take place. I am hoping to one day find the time to do some sort of animation of the island showing the various locales I've painted and give the whole thing some sort of lore. So what the Sentinel is guard has not quite been thought up yet!

As to painting on black, I just look over Robb Hamel's thread over and over again for inspiration and education! Really that thread is what inspired me to try a faux black velvet thing. The benefit of working this way is when you mess up you paint more black over it! And you are right about blending the light into the dark. It is so cool an effect! And lots of fun too!
