    What you then have to value, is aesthetics of landscape, and how that applies to the tone or tint of green of choice, a softer pea green or pastel is ok, but a automotive glitter green, or fluorescent green is not ok,

    Get a third opinion on choices for colors from store or online paint companies,

    Hi :) I was hoping you could say something about my painting about what I should improve. I've been looking off a copy of a photo that looks like it. What should I add aswell? How may I help things pop out more (the orange yellow tree part)? I was thinking of adding purple flowers on the bottom right and bottom left. I'd like some opinions. Thank you. BTW, I'm not much of a green nature person. I'm more of a multicolor person. But this is a request made by my boyfriend :) Thank you

  • Is painting barrels black and exposing them to direct sunlight a viable way to heat water?

    Best answer:   .   Not really, it really depends where the location is and the type of parcel and seal and weather and angle of sun, cause of being direct, then how warm to hot varies, the black does tend to absorb light compared to other colours and white, then you have to understand the medium of barrel as wood, plastic,... show more
    Best answer:   .
      Not really, it really depends where the location is and the type of parcel and seal and weather and angle of sun, cause of being direct, then how warm to hot varies, the black does tend to absorb light compared to other colours and white, then you have to understand the medium of barrel as wood, plastic, metal, where wood will be lower absorption or weaker compared to metal, like comparing a tree trunk to car engine hood, .

    If you needed more heat to boiling you would require direct sunlight during high noon on equator, but more like a glas plate over a black metal plate with water flow or pressuring to creat Stefan or vapor, you time that flow to slow rate enough to heat water on output ,

    Purpose unknown, the limiter is time once hot water leaves barrel it releases that energy to pipes and air when exposed,
    The barrel would need several hours directly to warm water, and ma6 be better to create piping on roof or in unit tha5 runs from barrel through pipes to barrel again or to spout where needed, this does not create electric energy, unless you super heat water under pressure to turn turbine with generator attached for power source, very low , but enough for lights, so it depends how much water in barrel, where it is located on planet, plus how it is sealed or contained to prepare for use.

When my friend was trying to get green paint to go on his pallet, it came out too fast, and dropped on my shoe. I tried rubbing it off with wet paper towel, and it somewhat worked a little bit, but there are still hints of green on it. How would I get all of it off my shoe?

  • Is it weird for my to hang a picture of inspiring black people in my room if I’m not black?

    So I found this INCREDIBLE painting of historical successful black people (including MLK) but I’m not black (or white) so would it be weird to hang it in my room? I’m moving and want a lot of paintings but I don’t want to offend anyone or whatever
