painting colors with goethe

Posted by admin on Saturday, November 17, 2012,
Most color theory and color wheel info is about mixing colors and working with contrast. But there are more color effects in painting, that can't be explained by mixing or contrast. Goethean color theory is based on the effects of light and darkness. These are immaterial, yet visible qualities. From various physical tests (with a prisma or by analyzing the atmosphere), you can say: reds are about active darkness, in a passive light.

Clean Repair Antique Watch

Posted by admin on Sunday, November 11, 2012,
This, together with the hairspring, is really the most important part of the watch; the timekeeping depends on it, and it serves the same purpose as the pendulum of the clock. When set vibrating, or revolving backward and forwards under the influence of its hairspring, it will move quite regularly, whether it is turning only a quarter of a turn each way or a turn and a half. As a matter of fact, there is in most watches an extremely small difference between times of the long and short vibrati...

Examples Of Niche Marketing Products

Posted by admin on Thursday, November 8, 2012,
A niche product is a product that is made and marketed for use in a small and specialized but profitable market. When I was starting in Internet marketing, I did not seek examples of niche marketing products because I didn't know one thing about a niche market. I asked the question, "What can I sell on the Internet?" A question like that would have been more useful. I soon learned that I had to learn how to run a small business and how to apply that to the Internet. I was not a novice. I had ...

Painting Around Constraints

Posted by admin on Monday, November 5, 2012,
This is a bit of a continuation from the last blog post. Along with the concerns haunting me about laziness and the like, while the as yet unfinished 'Fire Dancer' was taunting me from the back of the couch, were questions of whether I had lost my passion for paint. Was it time to move on to something else? Had I finished my run with that medium and moved into a time for something new and different? Or, perhaps, was it a matter of location? Most of my previous paintings had been 4' x 5' and I...
