A smoke generator in the chimney for the wood burner would be very atmospheric blowing into the cold air with those lights on.

If you do want to fit one Rod get one that is for model building use as if you fit one that is intended for a locomotive it will pump out too much smoke and look like the wood burner is being used to burn illegal documents!

Great idea Tom, never thought about that. I am going to build a brick chimney at the back of the office, so I will need to find a cheap smoke generator so I can get some dimensions and work it in.

Loving the lighting Rod, it looks wonderful! Those pools of light are so atmospheric, you've got it just right - it made me think of Edward Hopper...
Those of you with a busy lineside streetscape could add one of these, flashing light and all...

(There's a whole subculture of this stuff, a lot of it very well done)

Thanks Andrew. It took a bit of work getting the wiring sorted, getting better at soldering in tight places.... :lol: :lol:

Enlighten me please on Edward Hopper.... :scratch:

I shall be adding one of those. I'm tempted by the Pendle Valley one, with optional flashing unit.

I'm not planning a busy streetscape, but I don't think that's necessary. It'll fit in anywhere in time and space.

EH was an American painter in the first half of the 20th Century, lots of isolated figures looking lost and lonely in big cities etc - see https://www.edwardhopper.net/

The atmospheric pools of light you've created in your garage, and your little chap working on his own in the office made me think of his work - here's another favourite:

The female figures in his paintings were always modelled by his wife, incidentally...

Cheers,

Andrew.

Thank you Andrew. I like the way he uses light at different times of the day to show how it gives atmosphere to his painting. Also they are giving us an insight into how we live day by day, although the pace of life was slower in his day, I guess anyone who was to try and paint the same way now, would show us a different pace in how we live.



I like these, although there are some brilliant paintings and I don't want to turn this into an art thread. Maybe start another thread in "Off Topic".

I am not an art critic by the way.. :lol: I do like to see great paintings though.
