“The House That Jack Built”-Week 23

Third Corner Painting

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 23-Third Corner of Painting

 

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

Hands and numbers still to be added to the cuckoo clock, red or white wine?, plus the “Alligator Tail” label, changing the stance of the music-box ballerina as well as adding hummingbirds and the finalizing the turtle’s shell etc.

The detail work has been slowing the process down but the painting is still moving along.

 

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

Today, Monday, December 1; “Third Corner Painting”.

Monday, December 8 and following Monday’s; Post continuing progress images of “The House That Jack Built” 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 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.

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

“The House That Jack Built”-Week Five

The House That Jack Built Second corner

“The House That Jack Built”

Second Corner-Pen & Ink Image

 

The above Pen & Ink worksheet is the second 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 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 Second corner, requesting a suggestion of:

Something you notice on Exterior walls of a house

or

Something you see on the walls/ceiling and though-out a Living room/Study.

 

At this juncture, I ask that you notice how items were applied to the first corner and consider the types of items you suggest that might lend themselves to the framework layout.

An example: There are no floors, so items that rest on a floor i.e. couch, chairs, etc will not work.

On the flip side,

At the first corner posting, the suggested “Komodo Dragon” was not common to the Porch/Foyer area but I used it in the design of the Kimono hanging on the coat rack. As an artist, I will consider your suggestion and how I might be able to include it into “The House That Jack Built”.

 

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/numbered, first edition print of the final painting.

 

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

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

July 21; Intermission. Post a past art image.

July 28; Post the second corner with applied items from suggestions.

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