Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.580

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Nyack, New York 2nd Empire Victorian. The photo 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.

You'll have to look closely to see this week's changes. Starting at the top, I've added paint to the lit side of the tower roof. Note that the right facing partial window is now in yellow. I've done the same treatment to the small dormer window on the left side of the house. I've added blue paint to the front porch, balcony porch just above, right side shadow and the two bushes out front. Note the front porch ceiling. Finally, I've added some green paint to the lawn and two front bushes.

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.579

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Nyack, New York 2nd Empire Victorian. The photo 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.

There is lots of progress for this week's cycle. Starting at the top, the mansard roof has recieved both lit and shadowed sections. This continues below where lit areas mirror the yellow seen in the original photograph. I'm attempting to maintain the main features of the shadowed areas. I'm pleased with things so far.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.578

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Nyack, New York 2nd Empire Victorian. The photo 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 to fill in the various elements using thin layers of paint. Note the yellow on the lit portion of the house and shaded blue portion. Green behind and at the base frames things nicely. I'm not yet sure how the pavement and driveway will appear. I'll figure that out as we go along.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.577

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting an entirely new painting. I am using the photo seen directly below. It is another 2nd Empire Victorian, this one in Nyack, New York. Well, at least the tower is 2nd Empire. It actually looks like a bit of a mongrel. It stands on a slope overlooking the Hudson river. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 5x7 inch canvas.

I started with my usual grid and pencil sketch. I then added some blue paint to my sketch. It's 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.

SPP Vol.574

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the Second Empire Victorian.  I am using the photo 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 on the painting.

Taking a look at the lower photo you might beleive that the painting is now done.  It isn't.  I finished the sky, lawn and background trees and added my initials.  After taking another look, I was not happy with many of the changes as well as the house itself.  Thus began my revisions, the subject of next week's installment.

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

There are lots of changes for this week's installment. The brick side of the house is now complete. Note the windows and trim, which also continues up on the turret. The foundation has been completed as well. Now surrounding the house are the start of a lawn and trees to the rear. There is still much to do.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.572

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the Second Empire Victorian. I am using the photo 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.

For this week's cycle, I've focused most of my efforts on the shaded portions of the house. I've now completed all those nice details that make a Victorian so interesting. The porch now frames the front door and window. The railing extends down the steps and to the ground. All other windows on that side have been painted in a similar fashion as well as the various overhangs. Finally, the roof has been given another layer of paint.

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.
