“The House That Jack Built”-Week 12

Thick Hair

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 12-Intermission

 

A “Thank You” to all those that submitted suggestions of items to be included in the “Fourth” and final corner” of “The House That Jack Built” project.

As I have listed in the schedule, I am posting a past Art image, as an “Intermission” while I am selecting items to be used and applying them to the Fourth Corner Pen & Ink drawing. This intermission I decided treat myself to a “now in season” peach pastry from the neighborhood bakery and another cup of tea.

 

The above Pen & Ink/Color-pencil drawing is entitled “Thick Hair”. This drawing was completed in September 2006. Various colors of the color-pencils were applied to the head in layers to achieve a marbling effect.

 

The continuing posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today,  Monday, September 1; An intermission, (post a past art image).

Monday, September 8; Repost the Fourth corner with added items.

Monday, September 15: Post an intermission as I work on the painting.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 11

The House That Jack Built Fourth Corner

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 11-Fourth Corner-Pen & Ink Image

 

The above Pen & Ink worksheet is the Fourth and final of the four corners open for suggestions of items to be included in the final painting. Anyone new to the “The House That Jack Built” please scroll back to Monday’s June 16 (Week One) and June 23 (Week Two) Post for a description of this current project.

 

The guidelines for the “House That Jack Built” project:

If you please, just one suggestion per person for each corner, when posted.

 

At this Fourth corner, requesting suggestions of:

Items you might see in a Front or Back Yard.

or

Items found around the Kitchen.

 

I have to admit, this last corner is the one corner I have been most apprehensive about. There is limited shelf space (only one) and limited space in general being restricted by the gate. Please, I ask that you scroll back and notice how items were applied to the first three corners and then consider the type of item you suggest and how that might fit within the design.

There are, again, no interior floors so items that rest on a floor i.e. tables, refrigerator, etc will not work.

 

There are only so many things/items that can be selected for inclusion to create an overall balanced final composition, and suggestions will come from different sources (Facebook, WordPress Blog, Google Blog, LinkedIn, etc.), so take no offense if yours is not chosen.

 

There is no compensation for suggestions used, but I will keep tab of the names offering suggestions directly to my post or to the “Shared” posts. At the end of this project I will “pull a name out of the hat” and send that person a signed, first print of the final painting.

 

The posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today, Aug 25; Post the Fourth corner for suggestions of that area

Sept 1; Intermission. Post a past art image.

Sept 8; Post the Fourth corner with applied items from suggestions.

The final sequence will be a continued posting of past images till the posting of the completed painting.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week Ten

The House That Jack Built  Third corner additions

“The House That Jack Built”

Week Ten-Third Corner with Suggestions

 

Herein is the Third corner of the Pen & Ink worksheet with suggestions from viewers to “The House That Jack Built” project. This is a camera shot rather than a digital scan so coloring is different from the previous “3rd corner” post.

Thanks to all that have participated so far.

As I mentioned in the first post (June 16) of this project, not all suggestions can be incorporated into the image. However some suggestions I do not include may still find their way into another corner of the house.

An example of this:

A Newspaper was suggested for the Third Corner and I have added this to the First Corner Porch area.

Had two suggestions for wall clocks, one a cat clock with the pendulum tail and one a cuckoo clock, so I used the cuckoo clock design but put a cat in place of the bird.

As I continue to lay out the painting, some shifting, additions, and alterations of suggestions can still take place up to the final strokes of the brush.

 

Next week I will post the Fourth Corner with areas to be considered and look forward to additional suggestions.

 

The continuing posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today,  Monday, August 18; Third Corner with suggested items.

Monday, August 25; Post the Fourth and final Corner for suggestions of that area

Continue the sequence, and end the project with the posting of the completed painting.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week Nine

Tulips

“The House That Jack Built”

Week Nine-Intermission

 

A “Thank You” to all those that submitted suggestions of items to be included in the “Third corner” of “The House That Jack Built”.

As I have listed in the schedule, I am posting a past Art image, as an Intermission (this intermission I decided to have a strawberry crowned custard tart topped with a smidgen, or maybe a dollop, o.k., a scoop of whipped cream and a cup of tea) while I am selecting items to be used and applying them to the Third Corner Pen & Ink drawing.

 

The above Watercolor Painting is entitled “Tulips”. At the beginning of my oil painting phase, I tried to do “Tulips” as an oil painting, (tried twice) just did not know enough about how to work with oils to make this a successful painting. I opted to complete it as a watercolor. Maybe one day I might try to work it as an Oil, but I am very satisfied with the watercolor version.

 

The continuing posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today,  Monday, August 11; An intermission, (post a past art image).

Monday, August 18; Repost the Third corner with added items.

Monday, August 25; Post the Third corner for suggestions of that area.

Continue the sequence, and end the project with the posting of the completed painting.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week Eight

The House That Jack Built Third Corner

“The House That Jack Built”

Week Eight-Third Corner-Pen & Ink Image

 

The above Pen & Ink worksheet is the Third of the four corners open for suggestions of items to be included in the final painting. Anyone new to the “The House That Jack Built” please scroll back to Monday’s June 16 and June 23 Post for a description of this current project.

 

The guidelines for the “House That Jack Built” project:

If you please, just one suggestion per person for each corner, when posted.

 

At this Third corner, requesting suggestions of:

Things you see on the walls/ceiling and though-out a dining room.

or

Things you notice looking outside a window.

 

Here, I ask that you scroll back and notice how items were applied to the first two corners and then consider the type of item you suggest and how that might fit within the framework layout.

There are, again, no floors so items that rest on a floor i.e. tables, chairs, etc will not work.

 

There are only so many things/items that can be selected for inclusion to create an overall balanced final composition, and suggestions will come from different sources (Facebook, WordPress Blog, Google Blog, LinkedIn, etc.), so take no offense if yours is not chosen.

 

There is no compensation for suggestions used, but I will keep tab of the names offering suggestions directly to my post or to the “Shared” posts from wonderfully appreciated friends. At the end of this project I will “pull a name out of the hat” and send that person a signed, first print of the final painting.

 

The posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today, Aug 4; Post the third corner for suggestions of that area

Aug 11; Intermission. Post a past art image.

Aug 18; Post the third corner with applied items from suggestions.

“The House That Jack Built”

Week Seven-Second Corner with Suggestions

 

Herein is the second corner of the Pen & Ink worksheet with suggestions from viewers to “The House That Jack Built” project. This is a camera shot rather than a digital scan so coloring is different from the previous “2nd corner” post.

Thanks to all that have participated so far.

As I mentioned in the first post (June 16) of this project, not all suggestions can be incorporated into the image. However some suggestions I do not include may still find their way into another corner of the house.

An example of this-Ivy was suggested for the Second Corner and I have decided to add this to the Fourth Corner area. A cat was suggested in the First Corner posting, I have used it in the Second Corner “framed painting with the rocking chair”.

As I continue to lay out the painting, some shifting, additions, and alterations of suggestions can still take place up to the final strokes of the brush.

 

Next week I will post the Third Corner with areas to be considered and look forward to additional suggestions.

 

The continuing posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today,  Monday, July 28; Second Corner with suggested items.

Monday, August 4; Post the Third Corner for suggestions of that area

Continue the sequence, and end the project with the posting of the completed painting.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week Six

Four Watching

“The House That Jack Built”

Week Six-Intermission

 

A “Thank You” to all those that submitted suggestions of items to be included in the “Second corner” of “The House That Jack Built”.

As I have listed in the schedule, I am posting a past Art image, as an Intermission (I have chocolate chips cookies with a cold glass of milk sitting nearby) while I am selecting items to be used and applying them to the Second Corner Pen & Ink drawing.

 

The above Oil Painting is entitled “Four Watching”

As I started to learn how to work with Oil paints a few years ago, I contemplated over a few of my earlier Watercolor and Color Pencil drawings and how they would lend themselves as an Oil painting. This 2012 Oil painting is the reworking of a Color pencil drawing I completed in 2006.

Never did figure out what they were watching at the time, but in lieu of this project, they decided to take a moment and watch the ongoing construction of the house. Roy, the gentleman to the left, is contemplating his suggestion for the Third corner.

 

The continuing posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today,  Monday, July 21; An intermission, (post a past art image).

Monday, July 28; Repost the Second corner with added items.

Monday, August 4; Post the Third corner for suggestions of that area.

Continue the sequence, and end the project with the posting of the completed painting.
