Always wanted to repaint my own lil' jon boat one day... you have just given me a 2nd project one moon yonder. I know getting gelcoats off a fiberglass or aluminum boat is different than this a lil, but I think a lot of similar things/steps take place... like wet sanding & such? Or am I totally wrong with board laminates...

Might be hitting you up in a couple years... by the way, everything is sick, art is impressive, and the top portion of the mountain spines is ridic.

Awesome chit bro!!!

Wow that looks so cool. Nice touch with the bit of pointillism.

I'm curious about your mediums, is the mountain more of the acrylic paint or the sharpie pens?

I start off with the blue color scheme in acrylic (regular tube) to get the background tones then I paint directly with a brush the general look of the mountains in acrylic as well, and go back with paint pens and fine tip brushes to bring out the details and highlights... long slow process and the pictures don't really show off the brush strokes well or the fine details... Still learning how acrylic paint moves on the surface & how to achieve certain effects. I usually paint with watercolors though… and my subjects is always peoples dogs. Here is a watercolor I did a while ago of a wolf.

The bigger circles are from found objects around the studio, & the smaller ones are hand done. The bigger the spheres get the less accurate I become unless there 4-5 ft. circles and I can put my whole shoulder into it. Basically anything bigger than a 50¢ piece and my precision starts to fade.
But the paints are just plain tube acrylics that you can buy at any art supply store, nothing special. They are not like $25 tubes of archival pigments or anything. I say for the most part the expensive paints are only better in MAYBE fades/blending or longer paint play times (how long you can manipulate the paint on the surface before it starts to dry out)...and the paint markers are water based acrylics as well.
As far as advice goes, this is the first time I'm painting up a deck surface & I am still new to acrylics so I can't really suggest anything... but as I continue and come across issues or problems I will document it here for future painter projects.

No clue on sanding a boat. But I never wet sanded the deck. Just kinda hit it briefly so there was grip to to primer it first then went straight to the paints. Also I didn't really think to hard about this paint process since I wasn't planning on putting any more miles on the board. After its done I'll seal it with some clear coat or modpodge and retire it to some wall. Now if I was painting a board I was still planning on riding I think I would have sanded it down differently and more cautiously...

Anyways thanx for the love
I wish I actually swallow tailed the board in the shape of a mountain silhouette and at the nose where the floating mountain is I may jig saw it to line up with the mountain profile... kinda like how LIB-Tech cut there Holy Bowly cat ear deck.

That is so cool, I love the basics in paint and detail in paintpen idea. It layers really nicely.
