Fire Art

Hello everyone. I am back again and this time with something different as usual. Today’s topic is Fire Art.

Well, fire art doesn’t mean you have to do anything with real fire but only with painting. Ofcourse painting fire can make any one nervous not only the novice artists but also the experienced ones.

So today I will not only share my art with you but also will write down a tutorial for how to create a fire art. And ofcourse share some references.

For fire painting you need to observe the flames. You can either use a candle or anything. You need observe the colour and shapes of the flame and how they flicker and dance around each other.

One tip I prefer sharing is, always use a black background for fire painting it will highlight the entire picture of yours.

The black background not only highlights the intensity of the fire but also makes it easier to paint. When you start off with a dark background, this adds stark contrast which will ensure that you keep the painting focused on the fire and nothing else.

Things you will require:

1: Pallete

2: Medium sized paint brush

3: An old rag

4: Paints. I prefer acrylic paints but you can also opt for oil paints. The colours must be red, yellow and white.

5: Paint thinner for oils or water for acrylics.

6: The most important thing, the painting surface.

Background
Traditional painting rules dictate that black is simply an absence of color and should therefore never be used in painting. Whether you agree with this or not is up to you, but it is not essential to stick to the rules of fine art. Using fast drying acrylic paint or a watercolor wash, paint the background very dark or black. Cover the whole of your painting surface.

Colour Palette
Whether you are using oils or acrylics, select your color palette first. Select the color you want for the dark back ground. The darker the better. Choose red and yellow for the flames. Mix varying degrees of red and yellow to get different gradations of orange. You should have at your disposal a very light yellow, which increases in intensity, followed by varying degrees of orange and finally red. If you are using acrylics, you must work fast because acrylics tend to dry quickly. With oils, you don’t have to worry about this.

Red

Once the background is dry, select a medium sized old paint brush. Use your reference photo’s at this point and make a note of the basic shape of the fire. Notice s shapes and how they join together about a third of the way up the fire. Notice how two flames within the fire are never the same height.

Select red paint with your brush and load the paint onto it, being sure to get the paint into the brush really well. Starting from the base of the fire, the widest part, place the loaded brush onto the painting surface and press the brush onto the surface. Follow the forms of the brush in a free and light way. Trace the brush up the paper in the shape of the fire. Do not worry about specks of paint getting onto the neat black background. They will end up looking like sparks from the flame.

Orange
Wipe off the excess with a rag and repeat the process with orange paint. This time, trace the brush within the edges of the red paint, so that the red is around the edge and most prominent at the top of the fire shape.

Yellow
Use a rag to wipe the excess orange paint off your brush and select light yellow from your palette. Trace the shape of the flame within the confines of the orange fire shape you just made. Observe the yellow in your reference photo and notice how the lightest yellow part of the flame is located near the base of the fire. Increase the intensity of the yellow by selecting a deeper yellow from your palette and continue tracing the shape of the yellow part of the flame, within the orange part. All the while paying attention to your reference photo. The colors will naturally blend.

White
Add a little white paint to your brush and gently trace the brush in the center of the fire toward the bottom. This is the hottest part of the fire and often looks close to white. You can make this as bright or as dull as you like.

Interview Zone: The Paranormal Investigator

textgram_1524494901

Hello everyone. How have you all been? I guess great. Today I am back on Interview Zone with the interview of Miss Charlene Lowe Kemp from UK. As the title suggests Charlene is a Paranormal Investigator and a ferocious one. As everyone who reads my interviews might know I do a lot of investigation before updating anything. It took me a long time to find her. Anyways I won’t bore you all anymore and skip to the interview directly.

textgram_1523605423

Moni: Hello Charlene, welcome to Interview Zone. So shall we start?

Charlene: You are welcome. Yes sure.

Moni: So Charlene is paranormal investigating your profession or is it a time pass for you?

Charlene: Paranormal investigating for me is a passion. I think everyone within the paranormal knows that to class it as a profession it would have to be a full time job and it would have to pay the bills at least to do it full time. Paranormal investigating as no professional tag to it as such, there is no set guidelines or qualifications you can take to be classed as a ‘professional within the field, I think people sometimes get the tag as a professional investigator when they have a certain amount of experience (this is normally based on years) and what you present as your findings. The key is to earn respect to be at least a creditable investigator within the community.

Moni: While investigating a place or house if you do not find anything on an investigation, does that mean the place is not haunted?

Charlene: No, activity can come in what I call waves. So people can experience a surge of activity for a number of days or weeks and things will just stop, weeks later activity can increase again. Locations that are alleged to be haunted I feel can be over worked with paranormal investigators investigating daily or every Friday or Saturday, which o think can affect the alleged haunting. Locations that aren’t investigated that much or have never been investigated seem to provide better evidence to put forward to suggest it may be haunted.

Moni: Do you take guests on your investigations?

Charlene: No I privately investigate, I used to run events where guests would attend but I found that by doing this I was just overlooking what was happening and wasn’t actually actively involved in the investigating. Many event teams won’t let their employees properly participant with the guests such as on the Ouija board in the fear that it may be suggested it was moved by the employee. It’s understandable why event teams do this but it takes the spark out of the investigator who wants to be involved I think.

Moni: You do not charge for an investigation so how do you make money?

Charlene: We don’t make any, a lot of people are in this field because they have a passion for it and something at some point triggered the fascination off in that person and I find that people do this for their own personal journey to gain the answers they need. There is ways which you can try and find for example writing books etc. but the total cost of your incoming would never amount to the money you have to pay out to do it for equipment, petrol, locations and so on.

Moni: Why do you not post all of the evidence you find at investigations?

Charlene: Facebook lives are a massive thing at the moment, it is a way of interacting with the public while you investigate and as well as yourself being there you have another set of eyes behind the camera to help. Facebook lives can be a good thing and they can provide good results for evidence but to me taking a camera and filming is a better way to investigate, you have better concentration and can review the footage much easier. If I have filmed an investigation I will post up my findings whether anything happened or not but reviewing footage and making an actual video of what happened is timely sometimes especially if you are the only one who does it. You also have to consider person consent too, if you are investigating a house the owner may not want to have it made public and that is completely understandable and their choice.

Moni: Can you help me with my psychic abilities – I have some questions?

Charlene: I can try to answer on possible ways to try and enhance your psychic abilities and offer things you could try and couldn’t promise they would work though.

Moni: Do you investigate every case reported to you?

Charlene: I offer advice to every case reported to me. I have found that 9 times out of 10 if a person reports activity they generally don’t want an investigation or they tend to back out on the last minute.

Moni: Do you do radio interviews or lectures?

Charlene: I was on pulse radio on the 22nd of May with Tom Warrington talking about all things paranormal. I have been asked to go to lectures at universities where I have said I would and their projects have fallen through and I was no longer needed to go, but in the future I would be happy to go and help out with lectures and projects, I see it as helping the field.

Moni: Are you currently adding members?

Charlene: I am currently recruiting in my team Yes, there is a certain way I think Every investigator works and I am looking closely and hand picking who I think would potentially be a credit to my team and who I can trust. Trust within the team is a massive thing.

Moni: Have you encountered any fake or fraud people in your field?

Charlene: I have worked with mediums who obviously do charge for readings and such for private readings and if the person agrees to pay this for a reading as long as the person is happy with paying for that reading and I can’t see a problem. I have seen other investigators con money from their following and fans before now. There is two incidents which stick in my mind and both investigators highly depend on donates to fund their investigations via YouTube. What each of these people did was go to YouTube and ask for money when they was experiencing personal issues within their life. They played on their following and their fans made them feel sad about their personal issues and sadly those who were blind to what they were doing and donated. The first time I saw it the person more or less said he was going to quit the paranormal then proceeded to ask for donations and even got his son involved on it (he stated he was homeless) Myself I wouldn’t go to my paranormal YouTube to tell my followers my personal life and to beg, I don’t see it being professional in the slightest. but these people know their following love them and hang on everything they say and people become threatened why they won’t provide them with the paranormal anymore…but what gets me is in the week that followed he got 2k in donations if not more and posted a brand new niche watch up….only weeks later, his friend who he works with did the exact same and for me I just don’t believe it and anyone in a personal situation like they say they were in should not be relying on their following, there is professional help they know and could have sought instead therefore I have to question their motives.

Moni: Any Particular case which had a severe impact on you? If yes please do tell us the story.

Charlene: Not a case as such but a specific haunting Yes, I recently went on the search for a haunting of a lady named Elizabeth Sheppard, who was killed in 1817 on her way back from Mansfield after trying to find work. She was only 17 at the time and she had been brutally murdered. Her killer was named as Charles Rotherham but after plenty of research on the case I found that it could be possible that he never actually did killed her and he may have been framed for it. His name has been placed on her memorial stone as the killer but the evidence suggested now strongly suggests that he never actually did it.

The haunting is of this memorial stone, it is placed where she is murdered and the hauntings of this lady is normally if this stone has to be moved.

I don’t no why but travelling to and from the locations of this case and looking into the research more, I felt a certain attachment to get this story out there and I came back and wrote a piece of it which can be found here

A Sad HAUNTING – The Tale of Elizabeth Sheppard

https://paranormalhauntings.blog/2018/03/06/a-sad-haunting-the-tale-of-elizabeth-sheppard/

I am not the only one that has felt a strong connection to this case some have spent 30 odd years looking into it to find the answers. It’s like Elizabeth may haunt the area due to maybe the wrong person being convicted and it isn’t just myself like I say feels like that, it is a case that has seem to play on a lot of people and pull every ones heart strings.

Moni: Wow! Well moving on to the last question I am thinking of starting my own group. What advice can you give me?

Charlene: My advice would be to go out weekly, look at all the different theories and concepts that make up the paranormal and explore them to find your own style of investigation. There is no right or wrong way, the paranormal hasn’t even been proven to exist but I think you have to find your own style on how you want to come across whether that be spiritual, scientific or extremely skeptical.

My personal advice to anyone starting out is be open minded….never dismiss something completely without fully looking at the whole situation and analyzing it first and never think you are an expert because there is no experts in this field just people with more knowledge!

Moni: Charlene, I will end the interview here. It was a great conversation and it was lovely having you here.

Charlene: I loved it as well. Thank you.

Lipstick

Lipstick has many colors. Regardless of the time of modernization, lipstick will always be there. For a few days bright colors like red, orange and pink were running very fast. Brown, Maroon and Coffee Tone Lipstick are now running alongside them. The Pink Leap was very popular so long ago. Now Brown has replaced Pink in place. Dark colors are in progress, but all those who choose to decorate are keeping the nude color lipstick fit with the skin.

So yes, today’s topic is about Lipstick.

textgram_1523805381

Nude Lipstick is suitable for any dress, time, and age as well and it goes with any dress, irrespective of colour. So nude lipstick is the most flurried trend of nowadays. Nude lipstick does not mean a colour. These include colour variation. Nude lipsticks comes in many colours, such as pink, reddish, brown, pitch, coffee etc., countless.

Lipstick has many brands. Popular brands include Mac, Revlon, Lakme, etc. Choosing a brand is important but choosing a lipstick which goes with your complexion is necessary. Taking care of your skin and choosing a lipstick according to your complexion is equally important.

Red or any dark colour lipstick would be absolutely perfect for white skin. If your skin is yellowish or warm brown; coral and pitch colours will be easily adaptable. Light Pink, Orange, Caramel Shade lipsticks fit for olive coloured skin. And for bright complexion; bronze, deep plum, berry, caramel shade lipstick will go well.

Combine lip colour or lipstick colour, then wear a lip liner and then use the preferred lipstick. By doing this not only your lipstick stability will increase but your lip colour would become more attractive. And if you are not comfortable by only using lipstick you can use a little bit of lip gloss as well.

That’s all for today. See you all on Sunday with the Interview.
