Best solution for studio lighting

  • Often the only time I can paint is at night, but my studio lighting creates a glare on my oil paintings to the point that I don’t want to paint at all. I have a daylight easel lamp above my painting and an incandescent ceiling light behind me. I’ve tried turning off one or the other, but neither adjustment helps. What kind of lighting would you suggest?

Krista Wargo, Yucca Valley, CA

  • One of the problems with an easel lamp is that it can create uneven lighting. With the lamp at the top of the easel, most of the light is concentrated on the upper area of the painting while the lower area remains dimly lit. Also, the easel lamp’s small bulb is a point light source that can cause glare or a reflection. An incandescent ceiling lamp, another point source, can create the same problem.

The best solution is diffuse light. Banks of fluorescent tubes give more evenly distributed lighting, especially if they’re equipped with diffusers. Suspended from the ceiling, these lights won’t create a hot spot on your painting. Even with fluorescent lighting, however, you may need to angle your painting or change the height of your seat to remove the glare.

Professional painters and lighting manufacturers often recommend fluorescent bulbs with a temperature of 5000 degrees Kelvin (K) and a color rendering index (CRI) of 90 or better. (For comparison purposes, consider that sunlight is described as 5000 K with a CRI of 100.) Many artists, however, prefer a mix of warm and cool bulbs. I’d suggest that half the bulbs be somewhat warmer, perhaps in the 3200-3400 K range, which is closer to standard photoflood lighting. I would use two fixtures, one with warmer bulbs and the other with cooler bulbs. This will allow you to selectively turn on only the cool light or the warm light or both at once, so you’ll be able to see your work under a variety of different lighting conditions (See Bridge of Dreams, above). Additionally, I would put in a rack of spot halogen or LED lights with a dimmer switch, which will allow you to simulate gallery lighting.

BEST EASEL FOR SUPER-SIZED PAINTINGS

  • I’d like your recommendation for a wooden studio easel that can accommodate canvases in the neighborhood of 8×14 feet.

Scott Glaser, Westport, CT

  • Although several studio easels can handle large-scale paintings, they won’t necessarily handle them well. For example, a single-masted easel that can hold a narrow 8-foot tall canvas may be unstable with a canvas of the same height but with greater width. A double-masted easel, which gives more points of contact for the canvas, improves stability, but even a double-masted easel may not be wide enough. Sure, you could use two or even three H-frame easels to support a single canvas, but adjusting the canvas would be a nightmare. You could simply attach the canvas to a wall, but you’d have to use a step stool to reach the upper areas.

That brings up another consideration–adjustments. Painters have what I call an “optimum painting point,” where the hand and arm can be held easily for long periods without tiring. (For me, this is just below shoulder height.) If the canvas can be slid up or down, you won’t have to move your arm to an uncomfortable position to paint the upper or lower portions of the surface. Some painters also work seated, so being able to slide a canvas horizontally without having to move a stool is a benefit. Additionally, tilting your head down as you work is more comfortable than tilting it up, so being able to angle the canvas is helpful. Having all the elements–bottom shelf, top bracket and canvas–move as a unit is better than having to loosen and tighten various knobs. Some easels use counterweights, which enable the painter to move the painting with the touch of a finger; other easels use hand winches.

Although several easels, such as the Richeson Best Classic Santa Fe II (www.richesonart.com), can handle an 8-foot tall canvas, only one that I know of will properly handle the width you require. The Hughes 6000 (www.hugheseasels.com), which is used by the Smithsonian Institution for restoration work, is the biggest easel commercially available. This triple-masted unit has all the recommended features I’ve mentioned, including the ability to move the canvas horizontally, as well as counterweights that can be changed to accommodate lighter or heavier paintings.

BEST PASTEL STUDIO FLOORING

  • What’s the best flooring material for a pastel studio?

Name withheld

  • I can tell you what’s the worst flooring material for a pastel studio–carpet! Carpet is almost impossible to clean, and the dust will get ground into it, remaining a problem for years. Best is a surface that’s easy to damp mop. I say “damp mop” because you don’t want to sweep pastel dust and cause it to become airborne. Any smooth surface that will stand up to mop and water will work: linoleum, tile, laminate and wood are good choices. (When cleaning laminate, make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Also, avoid surfaces with a pronounced texture.) If you’re concerned about tracking the dust throughout the house, you can place “sticky mats”–the kind used in surgical wards–at your studio entrance to trap dust from your shoes. These mats are readily found on the Internet.

By the way, if you vacuum, make sure your vacuum cleaner is properly sealed and isn’t blowing out dust. Pastel creates a very fine dust, and some vacuums, especially shop vacs, may not trap it and may actually shoot it into the air and redistribute it throughout the studio. A vacuum with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter will do the best job of capturing dust.

Dust tends to get other places besides the floor. Countertops, tables, windowsills and easels are subject to dust collection. Don’t ignore them when you’re cleaning your studio, and make sure you attack them with a damp rag. Wear latex or nitrile gloves to keep the dampened dust away from your skin. When I’m painting in pastel for a few weeks, I like to give my studio floor a quick damp mop daily and everything else a more thorough cleaning once a week.

You may find it more convenient to trap dust at the source. You can attach a “gutter” along the bottom of your easel shelf–a wallpaper tray works well–to trap the dust, and then empty the tray periodically. I also like to attach along the bottom of my painting a piece of wide masking tape, hinged so the sticky side juts out like a shelf. The tape acts like flypaper, trapping the dust. A more high-tech option is an Artist’s Air (www.artistsair.com) air cleaning system, which consists of a gutter with a HEPA vacuum cleaner attached.

Electricity use soars; Despite big job losses, demand jumps as New Yorkers snap up air conditioners, gadgets; supply is tight

Despite a severe recession and the loss of 236,000 jobs over the last two years, New York City will use a record amount of electricity this summer amid burgeoning energy demand.Industry officials say they are surprised by the rapid increase in electrical demand, which they trace to growing sales of air conditioners, a continued boom in housing and an explosion in the use of new electronic gadgets.

“We’re intrigued by it,” says Eugene McGrath, chairman of Consolidated Edison Inc. “We can look at our meters, and we see energy use growing and our peaks growing.”

The increase in electric usage puts a strain on the city power supply, though officials say the city should squeeze by this summer with programs that encourage large users to get off the power grid during times of peak usage. Prices are expected to rise slightly this year because natural gas, used to produce much of the city’s electricity, is more costly than it was last year.

Because of the increased demand, Con Ed now expects electricity usage to grow by between 200 and 250 megawatts a year for the next five years. This is 25% higher than the 150- to 200-megawatt annual increase during the economic boom years of the late 1990s.

This summer, the utility predicts, city peak usage on a hot day will reach 11,020 megawatts, 355 megawatts above the 2002 forecast. Actual peak usage last year, adjusted for weather variations, was 10,795 megawatts.

The biggest reason for increased electrical demand is growth in sales of air conditioners. Con Ed estimates that 200,000 new air conditioners a year will be bought in its service territory of New York City and Westchester County over the next five years, compared with an average increase of 100,000 units annually in previous years.

Con Ed says sales are going up because prices have fallen and people are no longer content with just one unit, located in the bedroom. The utility estimates that 85% of the households in its service territory now have air conditioners, compared with 80% five years ago. That figure is expected to rise to 95% by 2012, it says

The city’s population boom, combined with low interest rates, has fueled a housing explosion in the city, which has also increased electrical demand.

Last year, the city issued permits for 18,500 housing units, the highest figure since 1985 and nearly double the number issued just five years before. Despite the recession, permits were up 2.1% in January and February of this year, compared with figures in the first two months of 2002.

More housing means more air conditioning and electrical usage, since new housing is nearly always built with central air.

The proliferation of new electronic gadgets is also boosting electrical use-from more powerful computers and fax machines to cell phones and personal digital assistants.

“Look around the house,” says Greg Wortham, vice president of 1st Rochdale Cooperative Group, an energy supply firm. “Everyone has one or two cell phones, which have to be charged and plugged in. They have PDAs and their chargers. We all have one, two or three computers at home, maybe a fax machine and an extra TV box that didn’t use to exist.”

  • Working more at home

The drop in city jobs has not lowered overall electrical demand, experts say, because office buildings must still run central air conditioning units and because commercial energy use per square foot has increased as well.

“When businesses cut back, we don’t see a corresponding drop in usage,” Mr. McGrath says. “If you let four people go, you don’t shut off a lot of lights, and your air conditioning doesn’t go down much.”

Instead, people who have been laid off may stay at home more and, during summer months, use more air conditioning and other home appliances. Con Ed found in a poll taken last summer that 58% of homes in the city and Westchester County were occupied during the day, compared with 51% in previous years.

  • “That’s a big difference,” Mr. McGrath says.

Commercial electrical usage is also increasing because businesses are buying more powerful computers and servers to operate computer networks. This has occurred despite the fact that Manhattan’s office vacancy rate rose to 14.6% this March, compared with 5.5% in March 2000.

  • Commercial use up as well

“People often forget, when you’re Web surfing, you’re not just using the electricity of one computer,” says a spokesman for the New York Independent System Operator, which runs the state power grid. “In reality, you’re using a whole system of routers, switches and servers each time you jump to another Web page. And they all take electricity.”

Peter DiCapua, senior vice president of Atco Properties & Management Inc., estimates that commercial electric usage is now between 10 and 12 watts per square foot. It was as low as 6 watts in the early 1990s.

  • “Commercial electric consumption hasn’t gone down with the bad economy,” he says.

While rising demand makes industry officials nervous, several power projects are under way that could ease the city’s supply problems for the next few years.

A 250-megawatt expansion of KeySpan’s Ravenswood plant in Queens is expected to be on line by this fall, which should help prevent any shortfall in the summer of 2004.

Other projects planned for future years include Con Ed’s expansion of its East River plant, which would add 125 megawatts; a 500-megawatt plant at the Poletti station in Queens operated by the New York Power Authority; and a 1,000-megawatt plant proposed by SCS Energy in Astoria, Queens.

Also, several energy companies have proposed building new transmission lines into the city, which would also add to the local supply.

The most prominent project, by PSEG Power in New Jersey, would run a 500-megawatt line from Bergen County into Manhattan, under the Hudson River.

Learn about secret of a social gaming success

Have you ever been curious about what makes the success of a social gaming? Do you wonder whether entertainment factors only make this success or some other amazing things of the gaming space do this work? It is sure that almost all gaming company earns money from do business in the gaming space.

Some game companies such as Playfish, Zynga, Playdom, and MindJolt revealed their success secret that they made use of viral marketing to advertise and widen their market instead of using traditional advertising methods like using visual media, commercial, etc. they always make their customer feel like they are getting the best at the lowest price by a simple method: the company regularly launch simple models at the price as low as possible. Therefore, even the game product their customers buy is not high class, but it satisfies “fashion-chasing” demands of the customers. To generalize game companies’ success in a common formula, we can use five specific words: Simple + Cloning + Virality + Freemium + Direct

  1. Simple

What does the word “simple” here mention? It means that make every things as most simple as possible from accession method to playing rule and other relevant principles and tools. For example, producer creates simple compulsory registration as easy as possible. Who want to play just have to register by their name or email then the information base will automatically synchronized from their other social account information. Or during gaming, do you know what attractive user to play most? Every one have desire to gain the target so that an easy-to-get-target game but not boring is the game that attract players most. There is no need to make it too difficult for player to play. The rules in game are also simple and easy to follow. The successful gaming company also shared that they always used the simplest advertising method to advertise their new product and the most popular one is using viral video. They utilized this for several reasons. First, it cost less than using commercial or other visual aid like billboard or headboard and so on. Secondly, it has incredible power in spreading. Some videos were watched by million people all over the word in few minutes after being launched. This way is more effective than using a billboard because people rarely look up to just see some images while they are walking or driving.

  1. Clone

There is a lot of legendary game that game producers can learn and make their own legendary one. However, what the game producer can learn from the former one and what they can not? Is this illegal to using some similar features of another game in their game? People always choose a kind of game to play their whole life. No matter how old they are, they are still in favor of this concept. This just like people often watch different versions of a TV show formats. To make success, game producers always have to catch and meet their customers’ demand. Therefore, they based on traditional and most favored game formats to create some new ones. In their version, if they use the same images and other visual aids, this is not accepted and illegal. However, if they use playing similar playing method, this is acceptable.

  1. Virality

As I said before, virality nowadays is a popular advertising method in not only game industry but also in many other entertainment fields. After launching a product via viral video, producer immediately receives vast of comments in terms of both complementation and criticism. They are both good for their modification to prepare for official launching. Beside, this is a cheap advertising method that helps them bring images of new products to people at all age all over the world.

  1. Freemium

Freemium is combination of two words “free” and “premium”.This is a word in noun phrase “Freemium business model”. Freemium business model is a new and trendy business format recently. In this business form, players do not have to pay any fee for first and former levels. However, if they want to play further at higher and more difficult levels, they have to pay some money. By using this business model, game producer attract a lot of players. For example, a game named “Candy crush” on Facebook – an attractive game in recent a few months, it costs no money to play at every level but there are some fee if players would like to buy supportive tools such as bomb, “ingredients” to help you pass the current level faster. Not only Facebook using this method to attract more customer; there is a plenty of other company do the same like Twitter, Linkedln and Microsoft.

  1. Direct

“Direct” means to a direct relationship between company and their customer. How to create this close and direct relationship? The only way is by taking care of every single customer. It does not mean that company’s representatives have to visit every customer. The company just needs to send some wishes and online bonus in game in their customer’s birthday or other anniversaries. A direct relationship brings company a plenty of advantages. First of all, company get immediate feedback from customer on game features what is very important to game upgrading and updating. Secondly, company is able to access to huge personal information base. Last but not least, it provides company with a free and effective advertisement. By “word-of-mouth” advertising method, company will have many other new customers.

We have already shared with you secret of many successful game companies from the beginning up to now. You might think the information above is too simple and known by every one. However, not every business starter knows and applies them rightly. Therefore, if you want to have a flying color career in game industry or any other kind of business, you have to pay attention to any tiny details and tips in your work. Hope you will have a successful business!
