where do u get the blackligth paint
and do u have to paint the canvas black 1st

If I'm making a freebackdrop use black canvas, just to save black paint, but it's not nessessary. A good underpainting in grayscale is where I start. I mix my black light paints from pigment powders and acrylic media. But atleast Flashe, Rosco, Wild Fire make fluorecent paints.

can u explain the technique more overall from step 1 til end :)
jlof Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2010  Professional General Artist
1. underpainting in black and white
2. adding uv-colors

it's pretty simple

Amazing. Very vibrant and... I don't think there's a proper word to describe images reminiscent of third eye visions. Keep it up :onfire:

I for one think the subject matter is great...It's not everyday you get a well done painting that mixes eastern and western symbolism. Its all connected!

Artists today have unique opportinity to study all cultures and religions. Our minds are free, clear and educated.
This is golden age of visionary quests. Art like nothing else has power to mould the human metaphysical reality.

For some reason I forgot to comment on this yesterday. I think it's really a stunning piece (and I fancy it a lot more than the other new piece of yours, even though I like it too). The composition is balanced and the use of colors is amazing. My friend even refused to believe this has been done with UV paints. It's simply visionary and beautiful.

So they say. But I myself find the style a bit too 'cartoonish' and design not as hallucinogenic as I would like, but I have to agree that it turned out good.

I'm still trying to find right technique for making uv-painting look exacly like I want. UV-paintings often have very limited range of shades, but this is also case of oils/acrylics when colours are mixed 'improperly'. Layering technique seems to be very good way to mix also UV colours. In next set of UV-paintings I would like to push the limits a bit further with more layers, more time and larger size. :nod: That is if someone can still afford to buy them.
diamondie Featured By Owner May 3, 2005  Professional Writer
I don't think it's cartoonish at all! I think your style is fine, absolutely fine as it is. Perhaps it would improve further by seeking more hallucinogenic qualities, but there's a possibility that the artistic side would suffer.

UV painting is definitely a difficult medium, which is why I'm even more impressed by your coloring technique (I've read your painting "tutorial" on your website, too). I sure hope you can find people who are willing to buy your works, even though the UV paints alone cost quite a bit.

This is also amazing. I don't even know how to critique your work as I have already said. The colours in this are quite vivid and outstanding. Keep on creating :D
