Painting - Oil On Canvas
The melter uses an air hose to inject pure oxygen into the arc furnace, causing a bright burst of flame as the carbon and other impurities burn off. To the side are shovels already loaded with additives ready to be added to the molten metal if needed. The heat takes about an hour before it is ready to be tapped. I watched this process several times, making sketches and taking reference photos, then did the painting in my studio. I love those warm (no, hot!) colors, and the little touch of cool with the melters greens (fire retardant clothing.)
