“The House That Jack Built”-Week 21

Second Corner Painting

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 21-Second Corner of Painting

 

Ah, the woes of using a 10 year old computer with the non-supported Windows XP. Last Monday morning my trusty, yet very slooooow computer finally crashed and I found myself searching for a new computer and was not able to post “The House That Jack Built”

So here I am one week later.

As with the posting of the first corner of the painting, while there is considerable progress in this corner, there are still areas/objects that will be revisited and finalized.

It has been mentioned recently that a few objects in the first corner were similar to ones found in other paintings such as the paint cans (seen in the “Pirates in a Bathtub” painting), also the marbles (in “Walk in a Park”), the bricks (a common theme in several paintings) and the popcorn box (from “The Video Game).

This new wrinkle is having some effect with how I am approaching some other areas/objects in the painting. In this second corner, the wallpaper design from the worksheet drawing has been changed to the wallpaper design I used in the “She Loves Me Not” painting.

Not sure how the other areas will develop with related objects from previous paintings but I will keep my options open.

 

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

Today, Monday, November 10; “Second Corner Painting”.

Monday, November 17 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.
