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 Episode Author (Thriller)

textgram_1524652842

Episode is an application that has given many writers a field to write their stories and to direct it as well. Everyone can read, write and direct their stories with this application. You can also find your Genres and read the stories from there. It is very well categorized with its stories.

Today in Interview Zone I have writer/director E.Walker whose rose to fame with her first story CSI. She’s an American and she specializes in thriller stories though she is very young, she writes very well and she is the sweetest person I have ever spoken to. So without further delay I will post the interview with her.

Moni: Hello Miss Walker welcome to Interview Zone. So here I will go with my first question. You technically writer on thriller. Why so?

Walker: Well, I write so because I have so many ideas in my head about them and just keeping them there is horrible. I like to express my ideas and that’s why I began writing.

Moni: Interesting answer. Apart from episode where else do you write? Do you own a blog?

Walker: I do not write on anything but Episode. I am trying to get into Wattpad but I don’t know yet.

Moni: Which novelists do you admire?

Walker: I don’t really look up to any novelist.

Moni: Well, ummm, that’s pretty impressive. So apart from writing what do you do? What are your hobbies?

Walker: My hobbies are playing violin(nerdy but who cares) and I do sports such as soccer and track.

Moni: I don’t think it’s nerdy. I personally would like to learn violin someday. Reader’s love your stories, your work so have you ever thought of publishing your own novel?

Walker: I have thought about publishing a novel but I believe I’m too young as of right now. A friend and I are writing a story but it is nearly impossible that we will ever publish it.

Moni: Someday you will definitely. Have you always wanted to be a writer?

Walker: No actually. I always and still do want to be an FBI agent. That’s what inspired my first story CSI.

Moni: Okay, what are your upcoming works?

Walker: Some of my upcoming works are a winter break story with a terrible twist and a story about a new town being plagued with murders.

Moni: Final question (promise!): do you have any advice for the yet-to-be-published writers reading this?

Walker: Yes, it does not matter how many readers or views you get. But also don’t give up on your story. Make it advanced, don’t make it simple. Simple is boring. Thinking of new ideas, not ones from other authors. Be original.

Moni: That’s all for today Thank you so much Walker for this lovely interview.

Walker: You’re welcome dear.

P.S Miss Walker did not want us to use her real image so we used her anime.

So readers, this was Miss Walker’s interview. See you soon.

Do You Remember?

I know the way you look at me now, it is not the same. Our love has disappeared now.

But baby Do you remember?

The way you blossomed when I used to come,
The way you used to get angry whenever I left,
The way you blushed whenever I touched you.
Do you remember?

Please let’s reminisce the old times we have spent under the moon.

Those moments we used to get lost in each other’s eyes.
Those times when we knew we couldn’t live without each other.
The time when I believed you are only mine.
Do you Remember?

When you used to melt whenever I came closer to you,
The way you used to blow my mind away with your childlike innocence,
The way you used to Love me.
Do you remember my love?

Do you remember?
