Creating ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book project

‘A Walk in the Park’

‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ Book project:

Besides the five 16 x 20 inch oil paintings displayed at the Ukazoo Art exhibit, there were four paintings in the 22 inch realm. Of two that were 22 x 22 inches, ‘A Walk in the Park’ was one of those paintings.

To the book project, spent the morning where I get my digital scanning done. Two fold. Getting some images adjusted in size to match others I have on the Kickstarter Story page. Second, working to get a fairly accurate quote for all the scanning and layouts to be done if the Kickstarter goal is met and the book proceeds to publishing. This needs to be worked in to other costs (Publishing and materials) to establish the total dollar goal needed.

With a raise in postal rates, another stop at the post office to finalize mailing/shipping cost to be added to Kickstarter Rewards section.

“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.
