GENERAL DETAILS

Paul Ramnora, 51, London, UK. Morley College student: Arts, Computing, etc.

ART

All I ever learned from drawing was…‘I, truly, can’t draw!’ ;-) On the other hand, it was also due to this very same fact that…‘I can’t draw’…that made me wish to try even far harder still to succeed at it. So, I guess, the big lesson there is…‘mixed blessings tends to come with absolutely everything.’ Perhaps, the thing that truly matters most is…the constant ‘wanting’ to succeed; no matter if you do fail/or, not.

I feel that there is a ‘whole wide world’ out there for me to go see, experience, draw/paint…; and, of course, ultimately, be able to LEARN from.

I read once, somewhere….“not until I’d actually gone and drawn it…; I didn’t even realize that I’d never really SEEN that object before…???!!!” This, I confess, was my own experience, too; on drawing a normal ordinary every day object such as an ‘apple’; during a ‘still life’ class taken at Morley College. Seeing the fascinating kaleidoscope of colours/texture/density/weight/skin/outside/inside/core/seeds/base/stem/light/reflections/shade/tones/shapes/including, thick/medium/thin/not to mention, constant bitter struggles with ever changing perspective/etc. Yes, welcome to…-a really LONG voyage of discovery-…ART WORLD! ;-)

Art is a fascinating thing; in that the more you know…then, the less you feel you do actually know. Take a hand, for example; I could draw a 100/or, a 1000/or, even,10,000 hands…; and, still come away feeling that I really don’t know how to draw hands, yet…??? For me, the same thing holds true for drawing feet/heads/or, any other body part; at no point in time do I truly feel I ‘know’ it all, completely.

Art, it seems is fated to be my eternal destiny…; so, rather than very weakly choose to shy away from it…might as well go running straight off towards it…grab hold of, and, very warmly/gratefully embrace it…with all my spirit, including mind/body/heart/soul. After all, it’s impossible to run away from being exactly who it is you were, ultimately, ‘born’ to be…?! This is because I found the more I tried running away…; then, the more I wished to return.

To be honest, I don’t do art; art kinda does me; and, I go along for the trip…; having really very little choice other than to go where both my head/heart is at that particular moment in time.

The ‘inspiration’ tends to both come and go; and, when it comes…I don’t ever stop drawing/painting; and, then, when it’s gone…suddenly, I stop; but, always miss not having it, enormously.

Quite contrary to popular opinion, art is not ‘exclusive’; but, instead, exactly the opposite, it’s ‘inclusive; of absolutely everyone. Art, is here/there/everywhere; it’s both inside us/as well as, outside us; it is in every single man/woman/child; so that everybody is, in fact, ‘an artist’…; whether they chose to actually admit ‘this universal truth’ to themselves/or, not…???

If you appreciate seeing Nature…and, such things as sun, moon, stars, clouds, trees, grass, birds, flowers, bees, widely running waters: stream/river/sea; if you like the sweet smell of ‘fresh air’; the taste of ‘good’ food;’ if you enjoy listening to music or song/seeing and watching expressive dance movements; then, that very ‘thought’ in itself…is just one other form of…pure ‘artistic expression’.

To say either, I love this/or else, I love that; well, that’s all art…art=LOVE! ;-)

“Having the ability to be able to experiment is very important in art; one shouldn’t really worry too much about did I do it either right/or, wrong? Is it a masterpiece/or, not? But, instead, feel perfectly FREE to experiment…and, learn…by doing anything at all you please. Because, only in that way alone, I find, one does not get ‘stuck in a rut’; where every single piece you create tends to look exactly the same…! I find your art to be wonderful to look at; in that, I feel, it’s constantly always changing; and, therefore, I never quite know exactly what to expect seeing, next….?! This is a really good thing. ;-)”

When I have to sit and ‘think’ about it…; then, I think, that this house has got far too many windows/stories; this tree has got far too many branches/leaves; this animal has got far too many stripes/these clothes have got far too many folds…; and, so on… But, as with so many other things in life,…thinking…about doing art…tends to be a hell of a lot far harder than is the actual straight forwards process of merely just getting up and doing it; so, my best advice there is…DON’T THINK; just, simply, DO IT! Quite honestly, thinking too much…will only succeed in putting you right off, completely.

Truly GREAT art…speaks for itself…just through the very simple act of merely LOOKING at it. However, when an artist starts getting all ‘wordy’ about their work…; then, it’s most probably NOT good; with that statement, I tend to agree, wholeheartedly. Me, I think, I talk far too much…; and, need to stop talking, now…; and, just get on with doing more and more extremely patient practice…; then, my work just might be able to get the chance to improve.


PHOTOGRAPHY

I remember it was a dull grey, wet, rainy, and, bitterly cold day; but, I didn’t mind too much…as all I was interested in doing was ‘taking a really good photograph’; by shooting myself being seen inside of the window’s reflective glass mirror.

Should I hold up the camera either this way/or, that: horizontal/vertical/diagonal…? Should I hold it head height/shoulder height/or else, waist height, instead? Should I seek to go take a long distance shot by moving further backwards/a medium shot staying exactly where I am/or else, move inwards to go get a close up/or, even, really close up…just how close up can I actually get…; on the other hand, instead, of walking…maybe, I should try using the camera’s zoom? Is the lighting quite right; should I chose to use flash/or, no flash/or, just put the camera on auto-flash, instead; thus, letting the camera choose whichever settings for me totally automatically?

It’s kinda funny how whenever our mind is set on doing something…; then, everything else which is going on all around us…we can just totally and completely ignore.

Such is the ‘power of art’, I guess; which forces one to concentrate the mind; perhaps, in a way, art should be considered to be a form of ‘meditation’.


1.02 Online computer programs/programming


COMPUTING

As somebody with a keen interest in doing purely ‘amateur’ computer programming, as a part time hobby; and, also, with an equally keen interest in art/(s); therefore, it has always been my high ambition to be able to design a computer program than can produce art.

I can think of a few programs that I’ve encountered before, all of which tend to ‘inspire’ me…

PHOTOGRAPHY PROGRAMS ONLINE

http://www.pixlr.com
…this is an excellent site when it comes to taking photographs that you wish to ‘digitally manipulate’; as it allows you to add all sorts of different effects: brighten/darken/make glow/etc.

DRAWING PROGRAMS ONLINE

http://www.jacksonpollock.org
…use your mouse to draw liquidly; just like Jackson Pollick did. ;-) NOTE: At first, all you will see is a totally ‘blank’ screen; but, when you move your mouse…then, all of a sudden, lines start appearing…; ‘left’ mouse click to switch colours/‘right’ mouse click to redraw from a ‘blank’ screen, again, by choosing option: ‘Play’.

http://www.zefrank.com/scribbler
http://www.zefrank.com/scribbler/scribblertoo
…there are 2 different versions of this program; basically, you draw with the mouse; and, then, the program fills in each line you make with random scribbles.

http://www.mrdoob.com/projects/harmony/#sketchy
…this program is called: Sketchy; and, it is really REALLY cool. ;-)

COMPUTER PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES YOU CAN EITHER TRY ONLINE/OR ELSE, FREELY DOWNLOAD TO GO PLAY WITH WHILST BEING OFFLINE

LOGO

http://library.thinkquest.org/18446/eintro.shtml
…in LOGO programming…which is often used to teach kids how to program/as well as, introduce them to ‘maths/geometrical shape rules’…a triangle has 3 sides/a square has four sides/a pentagon has 5 sides/a circle is 360 degrees/and, so on… You have a mouse pointer in the shape of a ‘turtle graphic’ with both a head/tail…very simple, and, straight forwards commands are issued in order to move this turtle pointer around the screen using a mixture of both pixels/degrees…go 100[pixels]/left 90[degrees]/go 100/right 90/etc…and, repeating these same commands just 4 times will form a square shape; the turtle moves off in whichever direction that it’s head is currently facing…whilst at the same time, leaving a trailing ‘line’ behind it’s tail. NOTE: Turtle commands can also be abbreviated to make spelling them easier: eg. RIGHT 90 = RT 90/LEFT 90=LT 90.

WinLogo program to create square shape:-

go 100
rt 90
go 100
rt 90
go 100
rt 90
go 100
rt 90

SCRATCH

http://scratch.mit.edu
…where you can go and FREELY download the language yourself.
http://video.mit.edu/channel/scratch/
…videos showing you what Scratch is all about.
http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/Firedrake969/31...
…and, example program you can play with from inside your browser.

The Scratch programming language teaches kids basic computer programming concepts; as well as, how to create their own computer ‘animations’.

JAVASCRIPT

There is a version of Javascript, which even kids can use, to be found at the FREE online educational resource…

http://www.khanacademy.org
…main web site page category headings
https://www.khanacademy.org/cs
…cs=computer science section: Drawing/Programming/Animation/User Interaction

NOTE: You can write programs/and, then, view their output…inside of your own web browser; plus, there are also online tutorials explaining how all of the commands are written; you can see computer programs which were created by other students; and, if you ever get stuck…then, you can also ask questions which are, generally speaking, answered almost instantly, right away; by other online eager learners such as yourself.

JAVASCRIPT/HTML 5

Another way you can use Javascript to produce graphical output inside of web pages is to use the ‘new’ HTML 5 canvas element/first, set up the canvas using HTML code; then, draw on this canvas using Javascript code; a tutorial teaching exactly how to achieve doing this can be found here…

http://w3schools.com/html/html5_canvas.asp

SVG/SCALEABLE VECTOR GRAPHICS FOR HTML WEB PAGES

For anyone who is able/or else, interested in learning to write/design their own web pages using very simple HTML; then, they will be glad to learn that they’re also able to add SVG graphics to their web pages, too. If you go here you will be able to get FREE online tutorials which will teach you all about how to write both HTML web pages/and, SVG code.

BASIC/QBASIC/VISUAL BASIC/VBSCRIPT

The reason why I’ve decided to include BASIC programming here…is because programmers are always very deeply influenced by what was their very 1st programming language; and, in my own case, I started out by learning BASIC somewhere around the 1980’s.

The original BASIC/Beginner’s All-purpose Symbollic Instruction Code programming language was designed to introduce people who are ‘new’ to learning programming how to program in a non-technical/non-mathematical manner. So, there are simple commands such as…

To print numbers…
PRINT 1+1
Would output…
2

To print text…
PRINT “My name is, Paul”
Would output…
My name is, Paul.

To print musical notes…
PRINT “ABCDEFG”
Would output…through your computer’s speakers…the musical sound notes: ABCDEFG

To draw a circle…
SCREEN 1
CIRCLE (10,10,50)
Would output an outlined circle; at X-horizontal position: 10/Y-vertical position: 10/and, of radius size: 50.

Microsoft QBASIC, or, QuickBASIC is an updated version of the original BASIC programming language…which does away with antiquated things like being forced to use, Line Numbers/GOTO statements/also, it allows the use of LOCAL as opposed to GLOBAL variables which are more safe/etc. This is the programming language which I mostly used on my PC to go create programs with; such as…

→random poetry
→keyboard draw: press up/down/right/left arrow
→random games such as: noughts & crosses
→random graphics
→etc.

QBASIC Version 1.1 can be downloaded here…if you are using 32 bit operating systems such as, Win95/98/XP
http://www.petesqbsite.com/sections/introductio...

For 64 bit operating systems such as Windows 7; then, I recommend you download the latest version of QBASIC which is QB64…
http://qb64.net/

NOTE: Both BASIC/QBASIC now-a-days are, in fact, old programming language versions; the latest version of the BASIC family of programming languages, I believe is…Visual BASIC.NET 2010. You can download a FREE trial program known as being called the Express Edition version for learners directly from Microsoft web site itself…

http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-gb/exp...

VBSCRIPT

If you are using Windows operating system platform; then, it’s also possible to learn to write VBScript programming code without needing to go download anything at all. VBScript programs can be written to run inside of HTML web pages…in conjunction with Internet Explorer web browser/or else, can be written as stand alone programs by using Notepad word processor. As a quick example of what it is I mean try the following…

1> Open Notepad
Click [Start] > Programs >Accessories > Notepad

2> Type into Notepad word processor the following single line of VBScript code
MsgBox(1+1)

3> Save the file as being called:
add2num.vbs

4> Go and find the file you just saved; and, then, left double click on it to run; and, you should see the following output…

2

In order to learn more about how to write VBScript code; I suggest you visit…

http://w3schools.com/vbscript/default.asp

NOTE: There is no point in me trying here to write an entire VBScript tutorial; which would be like re-inventing ‘the wheel’; which has already been invented! Instead, it’s best to simply include a link for other people to follow; which takes them off to exactly where the full online tutorial is.

LINKS LIST….CATEGORISED/AND, ALSO, MISCELLANEOUS LINKS

As a frequent visitor to the internet; and, somebody who tends to surf from morning straight through until late night/or, even, until when next morning comes…; therefore, I often find I come across many really interesting, and/or, entertaining web site pages…that I just don’t have enough time to go read/study all the way through, at once; this is when I get tempted to store these links here…so, that whenever my time is free, again; I can return back to find them.
