Technical Insights from “Not Far from Home” #20 « daniel gerhartz April 2, 2012 Warm, Cool, Warm… One of the key elements that I have taken away from years of painting from life is the heightened awareness of the warm /cool interplay on the subject as the form turns. How much is 1 byte, kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte, etc.? Below is a list of each of the accepted disk drive space values. It is important to realize that not all manufacturers and developers use binary base 2. For example, a manufacturer may list a product's capacity as one gigabyte (1,000,000,000 bytes, a metric value) and not 1,073,741,824 bytes (gibibyte) that it actually is. For this page, we are using the "common names" and listing all values in base 2. Note: All values are whole numbers, which means a GB shows it can only contain one 650MB CD, but 1GB could hold 1.5753... of a 650MB CD. Since we created this document to illustrate how much each value can contain in whole, no decimal values are shown.

Watercolor painting An artist working on a watercolor using a round brush Watercolor (American English) or watercolour (Commonwealth and Ireland), also aquarelle from French, is a painting method in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble vehicle. The term "watercolor" refers to both the medium and the resulting artwork. The traditional and most common support for watercolor paintings is paper; other supports include papyrus, bark papers, plastics, vellum or leather, fabric, wood, and canvas. Watercolors are usually transparent, and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with few fillers obscuring the pigment colors. Watercolor can also be made opaque by adding Chinese white.

In same way that off-road vehicles can't be tested by peastone driveways, souped-up sedans can't be pushed to their limits on suburban cul-de-sacs. In order to drive – truly drive – a car, modern commuters have to head out of their way to one of the rare stretches of American asphalt designed to push vehicles to their limits. These winding, curving sections of tarmac give great cars a chance to show off their muscle and great drivers a chance to remind passengers why the American road was once considered the purest embodiment of freedom.
