Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.662

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Tudor-style Victorian in Goshen, NY. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below along with a photo that shows the house in less glaring light. 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.

For this week's cycle I have continued to work exclusively on the house itself. Note the deep blue shadows. I've begun the lit brown areas of the house as well. These colors will change a bit before I'm done with the painting. You can begin to see the nice contrast these colors make.

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.

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here. (Currently under reconstruction.)

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 done two things. First, I have completed an outline of the building painting over the pencil lines. Second, I have painted the first layer of the sky in a color that is a just a bit too dark. It will change later on.

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.660

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will eb starting a new painting. It's a rare Tudor-style Victorian in Goshen, NY. Note the faux half-timbering in the front-facing gable and dormer. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below along with a photo that shows the house in less glaring light. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 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 am pleased. Things are off to 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.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.659

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the Cape May, New Jersey mansion. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 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.

There are a number of changes for this week's cycle. I've now revised the shadowed structure on the far right. It works better than the prior version. I have also overpainted the sky in a more vivid blue. It works nicely with the browns and tans of the house. And with these changes the painting is done.

The current 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.

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the Cape May, New Jersey mansion. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 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.

There are a number of changes for this week's cycle. On the left side I have straightened out the perspective of the street/curb. It was angle up a bit too much previously. Note that I have completed the street and shadowed the portion that coincides with the shadowed portion of the main structure. Continuing above the left side curb, I have painted in the 2nd empire-style Victorian behind the main structure. On the right side I have painted in a partial house with which I completely unhappy. It will change for next time. Finally, I have begun to repaint the sky.

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.

Hello again painting fans.

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

Lots and lots of changes for this week's cycle. Most sections of the house have been refined. I've taken a vaguely cubist view of things. Note that the details have been kept simple. The awnings now appear as sliced cubes set against the various planes of the roof and gables. Note the shadowed right side of the roof. Out in front the porch takes on the form of a large block with yet more awnings. I am very pleased with things so far.

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

There are lots of changes for this week's cycle. I've actually attempted to cover most of the remaining white canvas on the structure. Note the windows on the third story and left side. The various awnings are now present. The upper porch has had the railings defined as well as its lower structure. Much more will be coming.
