Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.679

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

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

I have continued to add various elements to the house, all below the roofline. Note the revised siding and second story windows. Out in front, the extended portion has received the same treatment, including the foundation. Finally, the fence and house to the left have received an additional layer of 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.678

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

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

Starting at the top, I've done work on the roof and dormers. The windows are in place and the front dormer casts a nice shadow on the lit surface of the roof. Below, I have added to the front windows, first story gable and supporting piers at the base. The fence and house to the left have also received a base layer.

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.676

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting. I will be painting a shingled four square style house (early 20th century) seen on my recent trip to Chincoteague, Virginia. I love the adirondack chairs out front. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. 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. 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.675

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the eastern shore of Virginia inn. 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 completed the lawn, front walk and the two shrubs. For these I decided to cut back the shadows as they seemed a bit too distracting. The walk is now only partially obscured. To the far rear, the lower portions of the trees have been revised. The painting is now completed.

The current and final 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.

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 was away for a few days but did get to make some changes. Most of these are on the porch. The porch now appears in white as does the entryway. Note the blue details as seen in the original photo. Finally, the gray to the rear of the porch is overpainted with just the hint of a front door.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.672

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the eastern shore of Virginia inn. 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.

Starting at the top, I have added paint to the roof, both to lit and shadowed portions. The chimneys and windows have added color and details, as has the porch roof. Finally, the lawn, path and bushes have been overpainted. Those bush shadows are a bit much and will be cut back a bit before I'm done.

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.
