Owen Chase House
The Owen Chase House

This was done as part of the Nantucket Plein Air Festival that's held every June. It rained for most of the festival this year, but I had about 3 hours of relative dry weather to put this together. It's an old, beat up, and haunted house and I wanted to get the radically different sides it has. The front is grey and very disheveled, but the side is bright yellow and quite homey. I had to stand very close to the house to get the view of both sides (and to stay out of the rain), so that contributes to the exaggerated 2 pt perspective, but truth-be-told, I'm a big fan of that technique after seeing it done a million times in comic books as a kid.
