Our family loves everything tiki! The art. The culture. The drinks. Mostly the drinks.
So to commemorate this special part of our lives, I decided to create a tiki painting of all of us, as if we were hand carved from a giant pole.
The steps to create this were like other paintings I had recently done except on a larger scale as this one would be 18"x36". It basically involves creating the artwork in the computer first and then matching my paint colors to what I used there. Here are some BTS shots along with a short video showing the process!
Original sketch in Procreate:
And here it is all framed on the wall!
