Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.695

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the old double-turreted Victorian. The photo that I am using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 8x10 inch canvas.

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

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

I've now revised virtually every part of the painting. Note the tip of the turret standing above the roof as well as the chimney. The lit siding contrasts nicely with the revised and now darkened windows. The lawn and the foliage far to the rear along with the building's shadow make for a now suitable site. Last but not least, the boardwalk out in front.

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.694

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the old double-turreted Victorian. The photo that I am using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 8x10 inch canvas.

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

I've now painted over all the siding. There is a consistency to these colors and a nice contrast. For now the windows are all gray. Eventually there will be more differentiation between lit and shadowed windows. Finally, the boardwalk out in front has received a little 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.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.693

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the old double-turreted Victorian. The photo that I am using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 8x10 inch canvas.

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

I've now painted the lit siding in a preliminary yellow. To the right side the building's shadow helps to place the structure in context. To the far rear the distant shrubs are seen in a preliminary blue/green. All of these changes further the depth of the scene. I am pleased so far.

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.692

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the old double-turreted Victorian.  The photo that I am using is seen directly below.  I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 8x10 inch canvas.

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

I've continued to add to the house for this week's cycle. This is why I like heavily shadowed structures. I've painted those shadows and the result is dramatic. The house now has a striking 3 dimensional appearance. You can now clearly see where I am going with this. More for next week.

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.

I didn't get much done but managed to paint the preliminary paint layers of both the sky and lawn.  I'll have much more for next week's cycle.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.690

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting. I am putting aside the Gothic style house for the moment. I will come back to it. I will be painting the back of an old double-turreted Victorian seen in Virginia. The photo that I am using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 8x10 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've overpainted the lines of my 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.689

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the eastern shore Virginia Gothic house. 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 seen directly below.

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

This week brings the painting much closer to the look that I had hoped for. The darkness of the porch provides a nice contrast to the gray siding. This is aided by the newly painted steps. Up at the roof edge, the white trim of the photo makes its first appearance. The signature gothic window is now dark as well. I'm please so far.

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.
