Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.562

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Victorian mansion. I am using the photo seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 5x7 inch canvas.

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

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

Starting in the foreground, I've begun the curved driveway. Just above, I've also added paint to the foundation. The foundation will eventually receive shadows that mirror the structure above. On the house itself I've begun to refine the various elements. Note that the existing windows have been reshaped and a few new ones have been added. (By the front door and to the far right.) The white portions of the house have all been refined a bit. Finally the roof has received more paint. The color of the roof, foundation and driveway are all very closely related.

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.561

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Victorian mansion. I am using the photo seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 5x7 inch canvas.

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

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

I've continued to refine the mansion. I've added another layer of paint to each of the various elements. The brick now appears as a solid reddish/pinkish color. The brick in shadow is red. Shadows and windows are now a deep blue. The roof has received a layer of purpleish paint. Paint has also been added to the foundation and lawn.

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

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.560

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Victorian mansion. I am using the photo seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 5x7 inch canvas.

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

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

For this week's cycle I've attempted to add a preliminary layer of paint to each element. The main body of the house now appears in red, the right side in a cream color. Note the angled red on the lower left where shadow will occupy the remaining space. I've also added paint to the roof and foundation. The lawn has more green, green now also appearing on either side of the structure. Things are well under way.

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.

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

I have painted over the entire pencil sketch. Below, I've added some temporary green. I've continued the blue paint into the sky. All of this is preliminary with many changes to come.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.558

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting an entirely new painting. Well, not entirely. It may look somewhat familiar. You have seen this house before, at least the other side. I will now be painting the main facade. I am using the photo seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 5x7 inch canvas. I love small canvases.

I started wiht my usual grid drawn in pencil on a print of the photo. I then drew the same grid on the canvas. I then transferred the house to the canvas. The pencil sketch is seen below. Next week some 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.557

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the 1940 Plymouth. I am using the photo seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 8x10 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's changes are few but notable. Out in front, the Plymouth has received its license plate. I've kept the letters/numbers simple and unfocused to avoid it becoming a distraction. Far to the rear, distant shrubs have been painted behind my black and gray Mazda. There is now a sense of the distance from the foreground to those shrubs. With these changes the painting is now complete.

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

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

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the 1940 Plymouth. I am using the photo seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 8x10 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've concentrated my efforts on the Jeep to the left side. Every part of it has been repainted. The body now appears in a dark gray. Note that the very rear of the Jeep is seen somewhat obscured through the Plymouth's window. I've painted the windows darkened to the shady side. The windshield now has a banded appearance. I've added details to the front wheel. Finally, lit portions of the body were painted in a light blue color.

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.
