Very Cool! I still can't get that smooth perfect look in my painting with acrylic. You work looks perfect, I'm jealous! Wendy

Thanks all...appreciate it!! I will post a couple more..and I will also post some concept sketches and stuff. Getting that smooth effect is all about taking time and building up the paint, be patient. Many times during a painting do I think I have buggered it..but with a little work and faith, it comes out in the end. Keep your brush loaded with paint but neat! Sometimes a rougher finnish can look great too... Also with acrylic paint...you have to blend quickly, and keep your brush damp. It's funny...I sometimes try and 'dirty' my work up a little...but I seem to get the same cleaner result??? Do what comes natural, try different things...and most of all have fun doing it. The more you paint, the more you will improve your tecnique. Cheers everyone.
Prices??

right on Dave. great to see u here. stoked to see your work. especially the black backgrounds that have such great deep space!

Kenny Ruzic, Monkeyman and i were at a dusty old consignment antique mall in Dana Point, and i found a parrot fish hat like ur puffer hats...shockingly bad. it was a little tight, otherwise it would have been mine. I went back a few weeks later and it was gone.
