Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.670

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 begun to delinate light and shadow. Note the blue shadowed areas of the main roof, porch roof and extreme right side gable. I've also begun what will be shadows on the two front facing gables. These have been delineated by the diagonal lines seen across each. This mirrors the shadowed areas of the original photo. I will slightly exaggerate the contrast. Also, the colors will change and all of the blue will be overpainted. Finally, I have added all that green to the surrounding yard and 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.

I have followed the sketch shown in the previous installment and painted in the outline. I've also started the sky and shadow across the front path, all in the same blue. Next week, something other than blue paint.

Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.668

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting. I will be painting an inn in the eastern shore of Virginia. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 5x7 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. Things are off to a good start. 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.667

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.

In the sprint to the final version there have been a number of changes. At the top, the roof has been darkened a bit. On the ground level left, the tree to the far rear has been given some additional paint. It now has a more solid appearance. Finally, both the sky and road have been revised. 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.

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 done some work on a few different areas on the canvas. First, the path has been repainted as well as the hedge. I've attempted to have an appropriate shadow to the hedge. Next, I've refined the roof dormer. Finally, I've refined the roof and shadows above the first floor and porch.

The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.

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.

There are a number of changes for this week's cycle. Most apparent amongst these is the faux half-timbering in the front-facing gable and dormer. It is what gives this house much of its character. Note the window details, siding and overpainted chimneys. Finally, the roof has been repainted.

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.

There are a number of changes for this week's cycle. I've now added to the body color of the house in two different colors. The brown sides and lower portions have been revised as well as the yellowish upper areas. Out in front I have added some green to the lawn and hedge. In the distance to the right side I've begun a tree.
