Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.605

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Cold Spring, NY scene. 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 directly below.

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

Starting on the structure, I've refined the windows, porch and gable ends. I continued with the bushes out in front. The wall has received some attention. It is only a start and will need much further work. Out in the street both cars are now nearly complete. Note the wheel section on the left side car.

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

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.604

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Cold Spring, NY scene. 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 directly below.

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

Starting to the far rear, I've added more green to the large trees. This continues to the shrubs out in front. Up on the two gables, I have added lit elements and shadows. This carries down to the porch. The dark shadow now continues onto the side facing gable. At the curb, the left side car has been refined a bit as well as the curb itself.

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

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

For this week's cycle I've attempted to get some prliminary shadows on the canvas. Note the dark blue on both gable ends as well as the left side of the porch roof. A shadow now appears under the rear of the right side car and the round bush out in front. Additional paint has been added elsewhere, most notably to the left side car and the wall at sidewalk level.

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

I began by painting some defining lines in blue. These will help me keep things in focus as I move things along. Then I started to paint some preliminary color on most of the elements with the exception of the house itself. Next week, some paint of thicker consistency.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.600

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting. It is actually the other side of the Cold Spring, NY street scene that was the subject of the last project. 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 in an accurate pencil sketch. I am pleased. Things are off to a good start.

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.599

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Cold Spring, NY street scene. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 6x6 inch canvas.

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

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

I've made a number of changes for this week's cycle. Out in the street I've revised the two partial cars. Behind them the fence now actually looks like a traditional wooden fence, with just a suggestion of texture along with a new color. Note that the far section of the fence is in shadow. Behind the houses the trees have been overpainted along with the bushes out front. Those bushes along with the one behind the nearer house have revised highlights and shadows. The painting is now finished.

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

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