Re: I'll surf with you! - WIP

Thanks y'all!

I'm dotting all over on this and so much to do still. I I got a lot done on the undersea part today but it also is far from done yet. I have to get back to the center area and develop the water more.

Hi Kerry & Attalus! Nice Orca-maid intro, BTW! The Sea water under them is VERY clear. Nice Tortoise, coral & fish. It does not look that deep, but with Sea water looks can be deceiving! It might be 15 to 20 feet deep or more. Coming along just fine, Kerry! See you next time. chiron22--Don Kephart

I worked the water Again ... still needs more work. I also put another coat on the sky and put the base colors on the buildings.

Hi Kerry & every one! The water going along towards the beach is pretty choppy as it should be. Due to all the large waves building up & crashing down one after another! The sky is a nice blue and the base color on the hotel buildings look fine! BTW, you might want to put a few Seagulls in. * I know you are not finished, LOL! Coming along very nicely, Kerry! Till next time or others comment, BFN! chiron22--Don Kephart

The Yellow Tangs and the Corals are looking really nice!

Re: I'll surf with you! - WIP

Ahh! Didn't even think of gulls! Of course we must have gulls! Lol!! Well I spent the night re painting the wave and the sea to its left. Also the sea swell the figures are in and just a little modeling of the figures too. I'm still not quite happy with the water so I will be doing more with it.

It's all very wet right now. I switched from working in alkyd to regular oils. It's nice to work a passage for several hours and be able to blend smoothly without my paint and surface getting sticky. It does take a lot longer to dry to the touch, though.

Re: I'll surf with you! - WIP

Well I'm still piddling around with the water. I just can't get it the way I want it to look. It is closer but I'm still not quite happy with it. I put a darker glaze over the middle waters surrounding the figures which I think helps and reduced the choppiness of the surface. I'll get there yet. I also added another layer of color on the wave and on the figures. Details on the building and seagulls yet to come.

Hi Kerry! Your Wave & Sea water looks better & better! The buildings are better also! * Before you start finishing Meriko, I need to talk to you on the phone to have you show her just a little differently. Most every thing the same. The Surfer will be fine as you finish him! Till next update! Stay Happy! chiron22--Don Kephart

Re: I'll surf with you! - WIP

Your take on the mermaid is a refreshing departure from the standard. It is more akin to the integration seen in the images of Centaurs. Super!

Re: I'll surf with you! - WIP

Don I'll call you!

Virginia, Thank you! Glad you enjoy my sometimes tedious efforts! The water on this one has had me repainting it repeatedly. I have done more since my last post but just no photo to show yet ... it is just more water! LOL!

L Skylar Brown, Glad you are enjoying this, too! The mer-taur design is my commissionor's Chiron22, not mine, even if done in my own style. Oh ... and we have done a lot of centaurs together, too!

Re: I'll surf with you! - WIP

I amaze myself sometimes by how little I actually get done after spending ALL DAY on one teeny tiny part! must be something to do with painting the same parts over and over ... thinking it's done - maybe ... only to re do it all over again!

Well, here are today's crumbs! I made some adjustments to orca-girls shape, then spent the rest of the day on the hotel. Still have more to do on the hotel ... lots a windows still to do.

Nice, if I missed it, I'm sorry but what is the size of this artwork?
