“This Old House” Illustration

Dug through the archives to find this – another example of my old acrylic technique, illustration for a story called “This Old House” published in the now defunct, Blank Canvas Magazine. 

This Old House

Although it was ultimately published (in all of its glory), I had a habit of downplaying my older work. It was an awkward scene from an interesting play, wherein a newlywed couple cracks a hole in the wall of their house and begins pulling out miscellaneous items, including an old dress (I tried to find a link to the original story – but googling “this old house” didn’t turn up much beyond home improvement sites.) As a bit of self-criticism, I could’ve done more to make the dress appear old fashioned, as well as make those folds agree a little more convincingly, but what’s done is done! I think the rest of the technique holds together fairly well. Do you agree?
