That's very nice. Especially for your first time.
But he's blocking my view of the dogs playing cards!

Very good beginning. As long as they don't sing "Jail House Rock" they'll be great.

Very cool for a first time! Where is this article that you refer to. I have his book 'Leeteg of Tahiti' but have not had a chance to read it. Is it in there?

No it was originally written by Edgar Leeteg for the november 1933 issue of "Sign of the Times" but then it was reprinted in JUXTAPOZ sept/oct 2002 issue 40.

A while back, I drove Eric Askew to the Leeteg Tribute Show @ Copro Nason. Eric was with Leeteg in Tahiti during his times of velvet painting. I asked him " hey mate, what's the secret?" He said, " I promissed I'd never tell". I'm sure in some way shape or form he told me with out telling me. He was excited about the show and chatted in the car all the way up and all the way down. One of these days, I'll get in front of a velvet and see if he brainwashed me during our drive.

I think the special secret to painting on velvet is going to be practice. The problems i have with it is remembering to leave dark parts unpainted. My tips would be short haired brushes that aren't wet with paint and raid a goth closet for black velvet.

Hey my fellow backwards name componet... Nice start on the velvet paintings. You could try sketching the image on black construction paper, using a white wax pencil. That way you're forced to work from light to dark, but I've never done velvet, so I'll shut up now. I think you should give up bars and go for velvet Ben! I love my "Eli" original of the Twin Palms!

Just reminded me that I have a roll of black velvet in my studio. Was going to use it for display at one point but never did... HMMMMM...
