Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.705

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the eastern shore Virginia farmhouse. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 5x7 inch canvas.

When last seen the painting appeared as it does in the photo seen directly below.

Since that time I have continued to work on the painting.

I began this week's changes by painting the area under the branches of the tree to the extreme far right. Next, I overpainted the house siding and shadowed area beneath the porch roof. Finally, I've added a bit more green to the lawn.

The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.

I'll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.701

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting. It is a Virginia farmhouse on the eastern shore. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 5x7 inch canvas.

I started with a pencil grid on both a print of the photo and the canvas. In this way I was able to transfer the elements to the canvas and achieve a relatively accurate pencil sketch. After that I painted over the lines of the sketch.

The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.

I'll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.700 Blogiversary

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Assateague refuge painting. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 6x6 inch canvas board.

When last seen the painting appeared as it does in the photo seen directly below.

I have now completed the greenery in the foreground. I chose not to paint the various fine plant spikes as my larger brush was chosen to avoid fussy details. I am pleased with this one. It takes me away from my usual subject matter and the reflection gave me a new challenge.

The current and state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.

I'll have a new painting to show you next week. See you then.
