Mural Painting

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Mural painting, as distinguished from other forms of decorative artwork is a painting applied directly to a wall. It is a concept that been used by humanity from the most ancient times up until the present day.

The earliest known history of this type of decoration was the cave drawings and paintings of the neo-lithic period. In this way early man used mural art to bring nature or fantastic-nature into his living space. In later times the Byzantines, Egyptians and almost all ancient civilizations used murals to describe not only the nature around them but also their interpretation of nature through sacred myths and stories.

A characteristic of this later, more sophisticated mural art was the use of decorative features such as frames, borders and geometrical patterns, which might accompany the theme of the painting and help it sit comfortably in the architecture that it decorated.

In modern times we still see murals being painted, but now often as political propaganda or commercial advertising. The availability of wallpaper and other commercial decorative features has made painting an expensive option but fortunately there still exists a market for purely decorative murals. In popular culture spray can graffiti has created its own heritage of mural art.

Trompe L’Oeil.

The late Greek and Roman period discovered the decorative the use of trompe l’oeil – that is making a flat wall surface seem as if it is 3D architecture, simply by painting it on with light and shade. Impossible architectural fantasies became possible in the hands of an artist. In Pompeii and Herculaneum there are many surviving murals using fantastic trompe l’oeil. The technique really came into it’s own in the Renaissance period. Ceilings became decorated as skies full of clouds and cherubs, walls had balustrades and pillars giving onto fantastic landscapes with battles raging and mythological creatures roaming. In the hands of the great Italian masters churches and palaces were decorated with masterpieces in this style at which we still marvel today.

Mural Techniques.

The techniques of the earliest painters were not necessarily best for the survival of their works. The cave painters most probably drew directly onto the rock with blocks of pigment or charcoal, using no medium to adhere the paint to the surface. Where examples survive, such as Lascaux in France, the limestone ground has become calcinated with natural dampness over time and has spontaneously adhered the pigment to the wall.

It is known that the Ancient Egyptians had Gum Arabic (resin from the Acacia tree – which we still use as the binder for watercolours). They also used egg tempera (pigment bound with the white of an egg). Most importantly where murals are concerned, they understood how to paint ‘fresco’. That is, painting raw pigment into fresh lime plaster before it dries. Most surviving murals of antiquity and the renaissance have used this technique. The great advantage of this technique is that the pigment colour combines with the natural calcination of the plaster as it dries, so it never fades. Subsequently, the technique of fresco was passed down from Greek to Roman and Roman to the Renaissance, so it has left us with a rich legacy of ancient art with which to understand the psychology and wisdom of our ancestors.

Are You Results Or Technique-Oriented? Life Mastery and a Lesson From the Art of the Ninja!

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

What do you focus on when you are trying to accomplish a goal? Do you focus on the goal and the results that you’re trying to achieve, or do you concentrate on the way you go about doing what you’re doing to make it happen?

These are important questions, especially of you’re looking to be able to accomplish your goals in getting the things you want in your life with the least amount of wear-and-tear in the process. This article, while written from the perspective of the ancient ninja warriors of South-central Japan, sheds light on the secret of goal-attainment that, when you understand it and can make it work for you…

…will give you the power, confidence, and control to create the life you’ve always dreamed of living, and – in the case of my Ninja students – the skills necessary to protect that life from anything that might threaten it!

So, the question remains…

Are you a results-oriented person. Or, are you a technique-oriented person?

Do you understand the difference?

As a means to help you see the difference, here’s an example from the art of Ninjutsu.

Imagine a mountain. A very high mountain – not one of these rolling hills that many people in areas with no “real” mountains call as such!

Think Rockies, Himalayas, or Andes. Make it a giant mountain!

Now, being results oriented means that you focus on being on top of that mountain. On the other hand, being technique-oriented means that you concentrate on exactly “how” you’ll climb the mountain.

One perspective starts with the end in mind – the other knows that if they do everything right, that they’ll “get there.”

Two views – same end in mind.

And, while you might choose one over the other, the Ninja sees that both are right and necessary in the grand scheme of things. But, he also understands that…

It’s not JUST a mountain!

The ninja is a results-oriented person. However; instead of just going through the mental exercise of visualizing himself atop the mountain without the wherewithal or skill to make it happen – nothing but “pie-in-the-sky” dreaming – the Ninja follows up with the development of a plan which, in and of itself, will determine what skills will be necessary.

The plan begins with seeing the mountain for what it is – a unique object with many “faces.” Some areas of it are smooth and almost vertical – others gradually sloping upwards. And, while each my save time, effort, or resources – the ninja also must recognize another factor often overlooked in the typical method of goal-setting used by the masses.

And that factor is – time!

I have students contacting me every day from around the world. And, every day I have students filling my classes to learn how to become a master warrior – a Ninja.

And yet, when I ask them how long they’ve been training, what they want to get out of the art, or what they need to work on…

…most have only vague ideas or no clue at all!

And, for those students who do have an idea – who have thought about what they’re doing and why…

When asked when asked how long they have to accomplish the goal or develop the skill, their answer is usually…

…as long as it takes.

Of course it will be… “As long as it takes!”

What I mean is… “how long do you have?” Or, “how long do you want it to take?”

The technique-oriented person can identify the exact skills they need but still take forever to get what they need and have bunch of skill-sets that mean nothing when related to one another.

The results-oriented person, on the other hand, knows what they want to achieve and why they want that “thing,” but can be clue-less as to how they are going to achieve it or never take any action to get anywhere!

The answer lies not in either extreme, for dreams and goals (results-orientation) without a plan and the action to accomplish it is mere idle-theory and daydream living. And, having a ton of techniques and skills just for the sake of having them is idle wheel-spinning with no direction other than to “have skills.”

The ninja warrior-wizard understands the secret that lies in the potential between both realms – that you must have the clarity and purpose born of knowing where you want to be and why, and the skills necessary to accomplish that aim…

…not just in the most efficient way possible, with the least amount of wear-and-tear on yourself. But also…

…in the quickest way possible so as to begin enjoying the benefits of your accomplishment!

In the words of one of my meditation teachers…

“Stop spending your life as a human ‘doing.’ And start living it as a human ‘being.'”

Get where you want to be, and live the life that will allow you to do what you want to do.

Because, anything less is a waste!

Garrowby Hill by David Hockney

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Garrowby Hill is a landscape painting of a location in Yorkshire, England and serves as one of the best paintings up to now from living artist, David Hockney. The painting is normally displayed in the United States but recently became part of an impressive Hockney exhibition which went on display at the Royal Academy in London.

David Hockney is a Yorkshireman who continues to spend a lot of time in the region and is one the greatest fans of the natural beauty to be found in this region of England. Hockney found Garrowby Hill to be an ideal spot for a painting in 1998, offering swirling roads amidst stunning greenery and a selection of coloured fields which suited his painting style.

This art work has a great amount of detail on the trees which sits either side of the main road and one can imagine this road being very enjoyable for any motorists making their way through this scenic route. It is believed that the city of York may not be far from this particular location.

Exhibitions of David Hockney require a rounding up of his work from all across the world, which underlines his global appeal. The amount of work now attributed to the artist mean that genre specific exhibitions are also now possible, as seen with his recent exhibition in London at the Royal Academy which focused in on landscape work.

Please take the time to learn more about this stunning landscape painting and perhaps even join in on one of the Hockney tours which take you through the Yorkshire countryside via the various locations of several of his key paintings. Those in the United States may not be able to do that and so instead might investigate the locations of his American-based works, such as in Malibu plus also the Grand Canyon where he produced several beautiful paintings.

An exciting fact about Garrowby Hill is that it came at the start of a period where the artist addressed British landscapes and as such there are many more to see in a similar vein for those already impressed by that particular painting. There are also blog posts online which outline several people’s journeys to these spots and provide photographs of the actual scene that Hockney would have seen at that time, with clear similarities but also some artistic license clearly added once he returned to his studio to start work.

The 8 Most Basic Flower Arrangements

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

When you see flower arrangements on tables in restaurants, at special events and even in offices and homes that you visit, you may think that they are just arranged that way because the florist thought it would look nice that way. You might not know this but there are actually certain patterns that florists follow when they make their flower arrangements. Here are eight of the most basic flower arrangements you will find florists using for different occasions:

– Horizontal arrangements – these kinds of arrangements are made with the use of shallow containers and use anchor tape as well as anchor foam to keep the design in place.

– Vertical arrangements – these are the ones that you often see in vases and jars in towering yet free flowing forms.

– Triangular arrangements – when you talk about triangular arrangements, you are basically getting flowers arranged with the use of a shallow vase or bowl with a tall center flower and other flowers arranged in a way that the final arrangement forms a triangle.

– Crescent arrangement – this arrangement takes the shape of a crescent moon with the upper and lower ends of the arrangement tapering and curving inwards to form the crescent shape.

– Oval arrangement – this kind of an arrangement has a thick central bunch of flowers and a slowly tapering top and a floral overhang that also tapers at the bottom.

– Minimal arrangement – this floral arrangement takes its cue from the Japanese art of Ikebana with very few flowers arranged in a style that is still very attractive despite the minimal number of flowers being used.

– Lazy S – this is one of the arrangements that often requires the use of flowers with curved stems to help you achieve the s shape that this comes in.

– Free Standing – a free standing arrangement is often one where the florist just lets his imagination run wild and arranges the flowers as he sees fit in a shallow container with the help of floral foam, floral tape and floral clay.

How to Paint Aluminium Window Frames

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

If you have old aluminium windows that you want to either restore the existing colour or you wish to change the colour, then, you can rest easy. You’ve come to the right place.

The process of aluminium window painting can be broken down into a series of steps with two distinct stages. These are preparation and application. The inexperienced however, will try and skip on the preparation to the detriment of the look and durability of the finished product.

Preparation

The amount of preparation needed mainly depends on the type and condition of the original substrate. For example, if you have old powder coated painted aluminium windows that has chalky paint and rubs off against your fingers, then this will take a lot more preparation than newer powder coated surface that’s not chalking and is being painted for a colour change.

However, anodized aluminium windows will take a lot more preparation than all other substrates regardless of its substrate condition because, the surfaces needs a lot more mechanical abrasion to key the surface up enough to allow the paint to stick.

Protection of adjacent finished surfaces- Whenever you are painting isolated section, it is important that you protect adjacent finished surfaces. When painting the aluminium windows in your home or apartment, you’ll need to think about putting plastic drop sheets down, followed by canvas drop sheets. I suggest applying plastic film and 3M, which you can with a hand dispenser to protect the glass and the walls directly surrounding the window frame.

Cleaning – Make sure all surfaces are clean and free of dirt. Grime and grease are critical in the process of aluminium window painting. If surfaces are dirty then paint adhesion is reduced. Clean the frames on the outside with soapy water and a sponge. However, use a soap that is salt free such as truck wash. Wash off all excess soap with clean fresh water.

Then, alternately clean surfaces down both inside and out with solvent wash such as prepsol.

Use a scour to apply the solvent. The scour will clean and key the surface at the same time. It is important that you carry out a second solvent wash on dirty windows by applying solvent with a clean cloth then wiping off with another clean cloth.

Sanding the substrate – There is no easy way around this process. This can be difficult and monotonous especially getting into the tighter spots such as the upper channel because there is no mechanical sanding equipment that can make the job a lot quicker. Thus, doing the job manually by hand is hard and time consuming.

If you have powder coated surface that is chalking, I would recommend sanding with 120 grit. The sand paper is less likely to clog. If your substrate is powder coated and is not chalking then 240 grit will be enough to key the surface especially if you have scoured it first. However, if your substrate is anodized then you’re in for some real work because you’ll need to break out the 60 grit sand paper. Have some masking tape band aids for the ends of your fingers ready because this is where you are going to be “rubbing your fingers to the bone.”

Sixty grit will really carve the anodized surface up. And you would want the paint to really stick, right? Skip this and you’ll be doing the job all over again. Once you’ve done this, it’s best that you go over the job again with 120 grit sand paper to smooth out the gouges caused by the 60 grit.

You’re nearly ready to start the fun part which is applying the paint. Just before you paint a window give it another clean wipe using your solvent wash, remember to use two different clean cloths.

Painting- Use a three coat system with the first coat being a primer sealer light coat- use a single pac etch primer. The second coat being the first of the top coats, then the second top coat being the third coat.

At this point, you have to make a couple of choices. First, what type of paint do you want to apply? I recommend either oil based enamel or a two pac poly urethane. If you have little or no experience with using two pacs, stick with the oil based enamels and apply it using a quality brush. However, if you have used two pacs before, then, the only way to apply them is by using an HVLP spray gun in order to gain quality finish. The benefit of using a two pac paint over an oil based enamel, is that you will get a more durable quality finish that closely resembles a powder coat finish.

Six Key Factors in Successful Teams

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

We all know that teams have the potential to achieve great things for organisations. At the same time, this is by no means guaranteed. So what are the six key factors in any successful team?

Factor 1: Skills

If a team is to succeed, it needs to have the right skills, qualities and attributes. In many ways, a team is like the perfect cake. It requires the skills, qualities and attributes to be effectively brought together to deliver the perfect result.

Factor 2: High levels of trust

A team without trust will never achieve anything. At the same time, it is important to recognise that having high levels of trust does not happen overnight. In my experience, one of the easiest ways of creating trust is to let each other know that you can be counted on by delivering consistently on what you have agreed to do.

Factor 3: Mutual accountability

When individuals on teams need to account to each other for what they have done to progress what they agreed to do, things happen much quicker. In truth, most of us, once we have committed to something, are more likely to do it if we know we are going to have to report back to the team.

Factor 4: A results focus

At the end of the day, a team exists to deliver results and it is key to keep the focus of the team on the end result. It is easy, especially when the going gets tough, to lose sight of the results and get lost in activities that distract.

Factor 5: Optimism

When a team is faced with a challenge, it is easy to fall into a downward spiral. Successful teams on the other hand will generally be optimistic and recognise that, even if the way forward is not immediately obvious, there is a way forward at the end of the day.

Factor 6: Proactive

Successful teams make things happen and don’t sit back waiting for others to do something before they get started. They grab the bull by the horns and start to make things happen.

The Bottom Line: While all of the above factors really matter, I have also noticed that you need to underpin them with appropriate rewards and a culture that recognises and values team working.

How To Remove Stickers and Decals Off a Football Visor and Window of Your Car or Truck

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Question: When putting decals on a Football Helmet Visor, how do you remove the black decals that come on the visor?

Answer: If the sticker or decal that is on the visor is an easy peel vinyl, it should remove easily, but if it’s a standard adhesive, it can be difficult to remove.

In this case, what you’d need to do is get a hair dryer and heat the decal up enough that it is quite warm – but not hot – to the touch. Once this is done, get a fingernail under one edge of the decal and slowly pull it off. Hopefully it won’t leave any adhesive behind.

If it does leave some adhesive behind, you can get “orange peel” glue removers from the hardware store or possibly a larger grocery store as well. Apply to a soft paper or cloth towel, then dab on the glue until it softens, then rub it until it comes off. Clean the remaining residue with a dry corner of the towel. This type of glue remover works well on most plastics I’ve used without dulling or clouding the finish of the plastic.

Question: I purchased a large decal to apply to the rear window of my car, and I was wondering if there is any product that could be applied to the rear window to make the sticker easier to remove, plus protect the window simultaneously?

Answer: Not that we’re aware of. In reality, the decal itself will protect your vehicle’s rear window quite well. And if you understand how glue works, you won’t need to worry about getting the decal back off.

Of course, now I’m going to tell you how to get window decals off your car windows or bumpers the easy way. Well, sort of easy.

Most window stickers of the exterior application variety will be printed on vinyl sticker material or polyester decal material. The glue typically used is an acrylic adhesive, which, over time, becomes hardened and more difficult to remove. If you’re purchasing wholesale decals for resale, it might be wise to look into removable glue decal materials which are becoming popular for this reason.

But no mind. In your case you’ve already purchased a large sticker for the back window of your car, and you’re nervous about damaging the window, either during the application or removal of the decal later. In neither case do you need to worry about the window.

When it comes time to remove the decal from your car or truck, get a heat gun or a hair dryer to warm up the decal. If you’re using a heat gun, the lowest heat setting should do the trick. If you are using a hair dryer, you’ll likely need to use the highest heat setting. With large stickers, you may need to heat a small section of the decal and work it off a section at a time, especially if it’s been on the rig for an extended period of time. Once you’ve heated a small area (100 square inches or so), begin to peel the vinyl with a slow but steady pulling motion at around a 45 degree angle. As you get to the end of the heated window/vinyl, you’ll feel it become more difficult to remove the vinyl. Stop and heat another section of vinyl/glass, and repeat.

When you have the entire decal removed, you may find that there is some glue residue remaining on the glass. You’ll need a good “orange peel” oil glue remover, available at many hardware stores, to apply with a spray bottle or a soft towel or soft paper towel to the glue. Allow the glue remover a couple minutes to soften the glue. You may want to apply a second application of the glue remover to the residual glue to further soften it, especially if the decals have been on your car for more than a year.

Once you’ve softened the glue sufficiently, you can take a glue remover soaked towel and gently rub the areas where the glue is remaining. Once you can visually observe that the glue is gone, take a dry, soft towel and wipe the window again to remove the glue remover residue. If you need to apply graphics immediately, you can use isopropyl alcohol to neutralize the glue remover, or if the decal was on a painted surface on your car or truck, warm soapy water may be preferable to alcohol, which could potentially dull your car’s finish.

The Relationship Between Language and Art – Art is Structured Like a Language

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Art is structured like a language. It is simultaneously a conscious and intentional mental activity and a more irrational, unconscious form of expression. Art can involve a sense of sudden exhilaration and liberation and also contain a mass of intellectual and emotional reactions. Art has the power to evoke emotions and the power to shock, confuse, repel and enlighten. Language has very similar characteristics. Language is a tool we use to communicate with one another and to express our emotions and thoughts. Through the language of art we can also communicate and evoke response within the viewer.

Does artistic meaning lie beyond the sayable and therefore cannot be captured in language or does form in art function as a determinant if its expressive or emotional content is beyond the reach of language?

The nature and identity of the work of art is examined. If an object is created in the imagination; does it rest on a theory of linguistic expression? When we use language, it functions to communicate cognitive meaning and art functions to communicate emotive meaning.

In the case of deaf visual artists, is their art structured like a language? Language is not only verbal it can also be sign language and symbols. For a deaf person symbols and sign language give meaning and mental form from which he relies on to create his art.

Ideas alone can be works of art; they are in a mental chain of development that might find some form. Ideas are based on language, so through language and symbols we can create art. Conceptual art is based on ideas; it is made to engage the mind of the viewer rather than his eye or emotions.

The more you study this topic the more you realize that you can not separate art from language. Art is language and language is art.

The Difference Between Photorealism and Hyperrealism

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

“Hyperrealism is a genre of painting (and sculpture) that resembles a high resolution photograph and is a fully-fledged school of art that evolved naturally from Pop Art, which led naturally to Photorealism.

Consequently, Hyperrealism is effectively an advancement of Photorealism. However, whereas Photorealists reproduced photographs so exactly that the human eye could not distinguish between the original photograph and the resultant painting, Hyperrealists took the techniques employed much further in that they developed ways of introducing narrative, charm and emotion into their paintings – which from a distance look like photographs but which when examined more closely are clearly nothing of the sort.

The term “Hyperrealism” was primarily applied to an independent art movement and art style in the United States and Europe that has developed since the early 2000s.

It evolved from the word Hyperealisme, which was first used by Isy Brachot in 1973 as a French word meaning Photorealism. It was the title of a major catalog and exhibition at his gallery in Brussels Belgium in that year. European artists and dealers have since used the word Hyperealisme to describe painters influenced by the Photorealists”.

The Encyclopaedia Britannica defines Hyperrealism as an “American art movement that began in the 1960s, taking photography as its inspiration. Photo-realist painters created highly illusionistic images that referred not to nature but to the reproduced image. Artists… attempted to reproduce what the camera could record. Several sculptors… were also associated with this movement. Like the painters, who relied on photographs, the sculptors cast from live models and thereby achieved a simulated reality”.

While the Encyclopaedia Britannica is satisfied with placing Hyperrealism in a semi-historical context and leaving it at that, Wikipedia goes further into defining the difference between Photorealism and Hyperrealism: “Hyperrealism”, it says, “is contrasted with the literal approach found in traditional photorealist paintings of the late 20th century. Hyperrealist painters and sculptors use photographic images as a reference source from which to create a more definitive and detailed rendering, one that unlike Photorealism, often is narrative and emotive in its depictions… The photorealistic style of painting was uniquely tight, precise, and sharply mechanical with an emphasis on mundane everyday imagery, as it was an evolvement from Pop Art.

Hyperrealism, on the other hand, although photographic in essence, can often entail a softer and much more complex focus on the subject depicted, presenting it as a living tangible object. These objects and scenes in Hyperrealism paintings and sculptures are meticulously detailed to create the illusion of a new reality not seen in the original photo. That is not to say that they are surreal, as the illusion is a convincing depiction of (simulated) reality.

Textures, surfaces, lighting effects and shadows are painted to appear clearer and more distinct than the reference photo or even the actual subject itself”.

Many artists, dealers, gallery and museum curators confuse the issue because there is no static definition of Hyperrealism. Consequently, photorealist artists are often described as hyperrealists – and vice versa. The true hyperrealist, however, is no mere copyist. The true hyperrealist recognizes that despite the extraordinary technical skills required in photorealism, (which are no less when creating hyperrealistic paintings, there is little point in merely reproducing a photograph as a painting; why not merely print the original photograph larger, he argues.

Instead, the hyperrealist interprets the reference photograph – or in many cases multiple reference photographs – and with the use of artistic licence, and specific and highly individualistic techniques of colouring and detailing, is able to add charm, emotion and ‘soul’ to his paintings, thus giving to his works a mystical, even magical quality that simply does not exist in photorealistic paintings. It is for this reason that hyperrealism is considered an advancement on photorealism.
