The Traditional Wedding Dress

The portrait of this lovely girl in her traditional wedding dress with her beautiful Mother beside her is in watercolour which is light, I had to paint the brides face in one go to capture the porcelain quality of her skin, but I am itching to paint her in full oils it would make a beautiful painting, it could be done in watercolours in great detail but would take a long time and so be expensive

PORTRAITS OF GREAT MEN - SCIENTISTS & ENGINEERS

Michael Faraday (1791-1867)

Below is an Indulgence of mine, a special interest in these great men and their achievements.
These Portraits were commissioned by The Siemans Company I was asked to paint the Portraits in watercolours in a very relaxed style, so I have included the intensely colourful backgrounds, the colours of which are my vision, or interpretation, & pertain to these great mens work. Hence Edison had a background of intense yellows and white, The Wright Brothers had blue and blue black of sky and beyond, Einstein has his 'equation' written in chalk on a blackboard and so on
.....
On 29th August 1831, Faraday made one of his
greatest discoveries; the "induction" or generation of electricity in a wire by means of the electromagnetic effect of a current in another wire. The induction ring was the first electric transformer.

Portrait of Siemens - The Company Founder

The background to this painting was all golds, with metallic gold threads to enrich the painting. Each of the twelve paintings had a different, intense colour background which was really effective and colourful when they were all seen together. From time to time I will show a different portrait from the series

Watercolour Portrait of Albert Einstein

In 1905, Einsteins annus mirabilis - the miracle year (he was 26)
Working after hours - all while putting in forty hours a week at the patent office - he created the Special Theory of Relativity, he demonstrated that measurements of time and distance vary systematically as anything moves relative to anything else.
That year Einstein created the quantum theory of light, the idea that light exists as tiny packets, or particles, that we now call photons. we live in a quantum universe, one built out of tiny, chunks of energy and matter
Later in 1905 Einstein proved that energy and matter are linked in the most famous relationship in physics: E=mc2.(can't write squared) (The energy content of a body is equal to the mass of the body times the speed of light squared).

His "Principle of equivalence" In 1907, he confronts the problem of gravitation -- the same problem that Newton confronted, and solved -- almost. Einstein begins his work with one crucial insight: gravity and acceleration are equivalent, two facets of the same phenomenon, to Einstein this offers the first hint of a theory that could supplant Newton's.

1915, Einstein completes the General Theory of Relativity--In general relativity Einstein shows that matter and energy--all the "stuff" in the universe--actually mould the shape of space and the flow of time. What we feel as the "force" of gravity is simply the sensation of following the shortest path we can through curved, four-dimensional space-time. It is a radical vision: space is no longer the box the universe comes in; instead, space and time, matter and energy are, as Einstein proves, locked together in the most intimate embrace.

Einsteins worst blunder--inventing a "cosmological constant" to keep his universe static. When Einstein learned of Edwin Hubble's observations that the universe is expanding, he promptly jettisoned the constant.)

Alan Mathison Turing (1912-1954) - the Brilliant Mind

Turing invented the "Turing Machine"- a machine that can automatically compute anything a human can compute within finite time, his major contribution to the development of the intelligent computer.

Turing also ventured into the area of morphogenisis-the theory of growth and form in biology.

During World War 11, Turing designed the machine that would help crack the German "Enigma" code.

Turing was obliged to commit suicide to escape the vilification of lesser minds, what a loss

Thomas Alva Edison 1847 - 1931

"Genius is one per cent inspiration and
ninety-nine per cent perspiration"

Edison had little formal education as a child, attending school only for a few months.His first great invention was the tin foil phonograph.

The first public demonstration of the Edison's incandescent lighting system was in December 1879.
In September 1882, the first commercial power station,in Manhattan, went into operation, the electric age had begun.
Then came a device that, "does for the eye what the phonograph does for the ear", this was to become motion pictures, first demonstrated in 1891

Orville and Wilbur Wright - The Wright Brothers

"The first flights with the power-machine were made on the 17th of December, 1903. The first flight lasted only twelve seconds, but it was, the first in the history of the world in which a machine carrying a man had raised itself by its own power into the air in free flight, had sailed forward on a level course without reduction of speed, and had finally landed without being wrecked.
The second and third flights were a little longer, and the fourth lasted fifty-nine seconds, covering a distance of 852 feet over the ground against a twenty-mile wind." Quote Orville and Wilbur Wright
