Rapa Nui by theancientofdays Rapa Nui by theancientofdays
You're missing out if you don't hit the "Full View". :)
This is today's work. I woke up this morning all jazzed about painting it because I thought the coffee-stain technique I use so much would work pretty well with stone.
This is watercolour, 9" by 17".

I studied the Rapa Nui people of Easter Island a great deal when I was at University - pretty cool stuff. So I have a kind of attachment to their moai. :)

Most of my Deviations aren't what I'd call "popular", but I have high hopes for this one. I think both of my watchers will probably like it. :D

Wow this is a beautiful drawing. I love all the color and it's great that you studied these Rapa Nui people. I'm sure I can learn a lot about 'easter island' from you :heart:

This has got to be one of my favorites from you, I'm such a big fan of your funny paintings. I rember your Venus painting back then.

This is so well done, you have a great imagination.

Wow! Thanks very much! I was so excited about the idea when it came to me. It was one of those "if I don't paint this right now I'm going to burst!" kind of things. :D

Thanks very much! I put this one in the front window of the gallery this week, and got a lot of chuckles out of passersby! :D Nice to see the word "groovy" again, too... :laughing:
