Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.687

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.

I didn't get done what I would have like but there is some progress. Note the upper level siding and window trim. Above, I've added the trim below the roof. Below, the telephone pole shadow now carries to the ground.

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.

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

For this week's cycle I have started to fill in the back and foregrounds. These are all preliminary colors but serve to help me see where I'm going. Note the sky, lawn and foliage. I've also outlined the wires and lines of the building. A fair start.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.685

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting. I will be painting an eastern shore Virginia house in a loose gothic style (early 20th century). The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. I like the various wires and telephone pole shadow and will be painting these. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 6x6 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. Next week some actual 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.684

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Chincoteague shingle style house painting. 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 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 small changes for this week's installment. Out in front I have revised the two Adirondack chairs. They now appear in a pleasing blue that is far closer in appearance to those in the photo. Shadow has also been added. Just to the right of the chairs I have made the white portion of the foundation gray. The white wasn't working well. The house next door has also been revised, now with a softer appearance. Finally, I have straightened the second story roof on the far left. Just one of those little bothersome details. The painting is now finished.

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.

Just a few changes for this cycle. On the far left I have added to the house next door. I'm not totally happy with the window but it's a good start. On the lower right I've added the small section of driveway. Finally, I've added the adirondack chairs out in front. This is only a start. They will need much more work but that's for next week.
