Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.619

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Main Street, Cold Spring, NY painting. 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.

There are a number of changes for this week's cycle. I've now completed the steps, railing and low brick wall of the brick central building. Note the revised bush as well. On top, the dormer windows are now complete as is the partial building in the foreground. I've also revised the brick building's cornice and brackets below. Finally, the sky has been overpainted with a slightly mottled blue. The painting is now completed.

The current and final 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.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.618

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Main Street, Cold Spring, NY painting. 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.

For this week's cycle I have continued to refine the mid section buildings. Note the shadowed portions of the turreted building. They have been overpainted with a thin white to achieve a soft slightly hazy effect. Next door, the brick building has a heavily revised entry. Note the steps and railing. I've added the bush and low brick wall and revised the shadow. The railing will need some further work. That's 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.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.617

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Main Street, Cold Spring, NY painting. 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.

For this week's cycle I've spent some time refining the buildings in the mid and far sections. To the far rear, I've taken out the brown building and given things a vertical orientation. It seems more consistent with the foreground structures. In the mid range, I've added porch and railing details. These will require further work. Additionally, some of these details will be partially overpainted with plants seen in the photo.

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've continued to refine the buildings for this week's cycle. Note the repainted brick of the first full building. Further along the line, the turreted house now has new siding and a repainted porch. More distant structures have been revised as well.

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

I've repainted the partial tree to the far rear, now seen in all green. I've also revised slightly the sidewalk at its far end. Along the sidewalk, I've revised the shadows in front of the building. There is now just a bit of green showing in the curved portions. The partial building up front has had some overpainting of red. Finally, I've started the brick front of the first full building.

There are many changes for this week's cycle. Over on the sidewalk/street side, the tree has now been reduced and separated into two. I intend to revise the distant one. The sidewalk and street have been repainted as well as the shadows to the left. Note the revised strip of grass adjacent to the street. Finally, the foreground storefront has been repainted as well.

I began this week's changes with the storefront to the far left. I've added another layer of paint. The ledge at the top has been started. Below, the shadows at the base have been started. Toward the rear, I've added the last few buildings, or at least the start of same. Along the sidewalk there are now shadows as well as the tree trunk.
