When working with acrylic paints like the previous painting in this blog it is advised that you learn to deal with the bright pigments in the fake oils in a safe manner. Especially if you are bald. You see the reflections off the paint can cause sunburn and eye damage if not properly muted. Below is a picture of my “Studio One” in the bathroom, as I am painting in Acrylics for the first time in a long time.
One way of preventing eye damage, especially inside when dealing with “fashion lights” like in many modern bathrooms is to wear a black felt cowboy style hat; as seen below.
Another idea is to skip the studio one nonsense and move to studio two. The open road, like on a Triumph Scrambler motorcycle.
It sounds like one versatile bike; for both mountain and city. It comes in multiple colors, including tangerine! What a dream to ride a tangerine. Perhaps better than being sublime when you ride a lime [another color]. Of course, Triumph has muted the colors lately, aka… to prevent eye damage. The new colors for 2009 are Matte Black and Matte Green.
If I were take my own advice, I guess I would have to be “all in”. So if you have a spare Scrambler in your back yard, I will make you an offer. Every painting you have seen in this blog… up till now for one Scrambler.
It sounds crazy from your end I know. However, I think I need to find some sort of transport for going on “Painting Days”. A scrambled brainer seems to be the ticket. So some day…. Until then, I think I will just drive my pickup.
