Long Beach Art Mural

We have just reicvied this email.

I was wondering if you knew of anyone who would be willing to do a mural for free down in Long Beach. There is this hideous wall at our dead end and I wasn't sure if anyone would be willing to take it on as a community service project of some sort. The wall belongs to Executive Towers but they don't do anything with it... some bricks are broken... it looks horrible and its right next to our beach entrance so it's definitely somewhere it would be noticed. I would think it should be something ocean like or beachy... its a fairly long wall if it was continued all the way down to the beach. Anyway... I thought it would look nice and be an interesting project. Please let me know if you have any idea of who would be interested and I would be willing to help get permission from the buildings down here :)

If you are interested in helping Nicole please contact us for her contact information

Introduction to Color Theory
Color is a very broad topic. Entire books have been written on color and it would be quite difficult to cover every aspect of it within the confines of this article. My hopes with this introduction to color theory is to peek your interest and hopefully cause you to study this topic further on your own. Understanding color theory is perhaps one of the most important aspects of becoming a good painter. When you understand the elements of color and how colors interact with one another, you have unlocked one of the biggest puzzles of painting
How to make your own oil paints
How to make your own oil paintsOil paints are made basically by mixing cold-pressed Linsed oil with pigment or color until a smooth buttery paint is produced. When the oil paint is used and applied to a surface the oil oxidizes or absorbs air and then forms a solid film that binds the pigment to the surface of the painting.
