“The House That Jack Built”-Week 19

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 19-First Corner of Painting

 

As I posted the four corners in sequence with suggestions from viewers, I will post the four corners again, showing the progress of the painting portion of “The House That Jack Built” project.

While there is considerable progress in this corner, it is still not finished.

With an oil painting, depending on how the paint is applied or medians added as I paint (i.e. Liquin, Linseed oil etc) drying times will vary. The newspaper on the porch and the Butterfly are two examples, both have been roughed in but need to wait 3 or 4 days for the paint to dry before I can add more detail.

As I also work at finalizing different areas, a few additional objects are finding their way into the painting. One, are marbles on the table with the ‘frog in the hat’. Added a hat and cane to the frog (courtesy of a conversation with Karen) and working on adding an origami bird on the bricks near the Kimono (courtesy of a conversation with Mac and Laura).

Some objects in the ‘first corner’ area still need adjustment. I am still not satisfied with the Kimono hanging on the coat rack, I have reworked it twice and still it needs some adjustment.

As I now move to concentrate on the second corner, I will continually drift back into the first corner to add, tweak, and finalize various objects.

 

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

Today,  Monday, October 20; “First Corner Painting”.

Monday, October 27 and following Monday’s; Post continuing progress images of “The House That Jack Built” painting.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 16

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 16-The Painting in Progress

 

The second photo on the progress of the  painting “The House That Jack Built” is posted above.

A fair amount of the items suggested by viewers of “The House That Jack Built” have been roughed in. There are several items still to be worked out and added.

As this painting progresses, artistic license prevails and items in the posted ’drawing’ stage may be reworked, i.e. the radio, over the door, has been altered from a rectangle to a more conical shape.

Another example is the cuckoo clock which will change to a more rectangle shape because a birdhouse will be hung from one of the boards in the same area and I don’t want the two to have a similar shape.

As mentioned in the last posting there might be a judgment call of inserting an intermission image on a future Monday evening post if I feel that the level of progress is not evident enough to show any major differences from the preceding week.

 

 

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

Today,  Monday, September 29; Second progress photo of “The House That Jack Built”.

Monday, October 6 and following Monday’s; Post continuing progress images of “The House That Jack Built” painting.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 15

Jack's House-1st

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 15-The Painting

 

The start of the  painting of “The House That Jack Built” is posted above.

As I mentioned in the “Week 14” posting, I have made the purchase of a camera to allow me the flexibility to record the progress of the painting. A ‘used’ camera with no book of instructions, but the instructions are available on-line, of which I downloaded (162 pages).

I have figured out some of the camera’s basic’s and the above photo of the beginning painted layout is my first attempts at hooking up the camera to the computer and downloading the image.

Still working with lighting and at one point I will be trying to manipulate the image in the Computer program to better the posted image.

The intent will be to post, each Monday, the progress of the painting till completed. There might be a judgment call of inserting an intermission image if I feel that the level of progress is not evident enough to show any major differences from the preceding week.

 

 

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

Today,  Monday, September 22; Beginning the layout of “The House That Jack Built”.

Monday, September 29 and following Monday’s; Post continuing progress images of “The House That Jack Built” painting.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week Seven

“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 Four

The House That Jack Built First corner additions

“The House That Jack Built”

Week Four-First Corner with Suggestions

 

Herein is the first 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 “1st 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 could be incorporated into the image. Some suggestions I did not include could still find their way into another corner of the house.

An example of this-Of animals/reptile suggestions (which, I admit, I am apprehensive because drawing/painting animals/reptiles are not my strong suit), I received a possum, a raven, a cat, and a Komodo dragon. Of those, the cat was not used, but is still retained on the list for consideration at one of the other corners.

 

I intend this project to result into a viable painting and as I add items, the artist part of me must also take into consideration-color, appearance of depth, balance, and overall composition. As I start to lay out the painting, the continuance of shifting, additions, and alterations of suggestions can still take place up to the final strokes of the brush, while I still work to maintain the integrity of the drawing worksheet and the project in general.

 

Next week I will post the second 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 7; First corner with suggested items.

Monday, July 14; Post the second 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 Three

At the Wall

“The House That Jack Built”

Week Three-Intermission

 

I begin this post with a “Thank You” to all those that submitted suggestions of items to be included in the “first 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 fixed a bowl of popcorn and a root beer with plenty of ice) while I am selecting items to be used and applying them to the Pen & Ink drawing.

 

The above pen & ink/watercolor art image is entitled “At the Wall”

Working from a small doodle in the sketch book, the initial figures always reminded me of the day the two young Dumpty brothers were expressing safety concerns of the locals and their habit of conducting everyday routines while standing on a wall. That evening, Benedict, the younger Dumpty, had noted in his journal, that their personal conclusion was-if one of them, heaven forbid, ever climbed up on a wall, they would certainly sit rather than stand. Apparently, years later, his older brother, found their conclusion to be slightly misguided.

 

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

Today,  Monday, June 30; An intermission, (will post a past art image).

Monday, July 7; Repost the first corner with added items.

Monday, July 14; Post the second corner for suggestions of that area

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