Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.567

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Nyack, New York painting. I am using the photo seen directly below. The scene is Main street in Nyack, New York, a historic town on the Hudson River. 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.

This week's changes are all seen on the lower facades of all of the buildings and the upper facades of the distant ones. The lower facades have added detail and a lighter color. Note the storefront windows of the closest building. Moving down the line, the upper facades are now all complete starting with that fourth building. Finally, another layer of green has been added to the trees.

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.

Changes are incremental for this week's cycle. Starting at the left side, I've added some paint to the hood of the Jeep. Just above, the trees have received another layer of green. They now stand prominently against the blue. The central tree now has a shadow running parallel to the newly darkened shadow of the SUV. Finally, the storefronts have been darkened in preparation for things to come.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.565

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Nyack, New York painting. I am using the photo seen directly below. The scene is Main street in Nyack, New York, a historic town on the Hudson River. 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 to the various elememts of the scene. Starting in the street, the roadway and 2 cars now appear with an initial layer of paint. The partial foreground car has a window and chrome surround. To the far rear, the two distant trees now have some green paint. The building facades have received multiple layers of paint, starting with yellow and overpainted with blue. The nearest building to the right clearly shows the result of that process.

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.564

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting. I am using the photo seen directly below. The scene is Main street in Nyack, New York, a historic town on the Hudson River. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 6x6 inch canvas.

I began with a pencil sketch of the scene on my usual grid. I would have been happy to show that to you but the photograph is just not dark enough to be seen on your monitor. So I have the sketch with paint added to clearly delineate the various elements. In addition to the blue outline of the scene, I have painted the sky and started the trees. There is much more to come.

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.563

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 at the top, I have painted part of the gable detail seen directly above the front door. (Above the section adjacent to the white wing. Moving down, the foundation has been straightened and shadows added. The shadows are consistent with the architecture above. Finally, on either side, the shrubs to the far rear have been completed. With these changes 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.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.

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.
