Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.100 Blogiversary!!!

Welcome back.

At the outset, I like to thank all those that have stopped by to read any of these many posts. In blog time, 100 anything is a real milestone and I couldn't have continued doing this for 2 years without your support. Thank you. On to the next 100.

This week we'll be continuing with our 5x7 painting of the new Gehry building in New York City. It is seen in the photo directly below.

When last we were together, the painting appeared as it does in the photo directly below.

Since that time, I have continued working on the painting.

I've lightened the lit surfaces (rightward facing) on the bands of windows. I've also darkened the shadowed areas of the bands a bit.

The sky has been painted over in a shade similar to the lit areas of the building but somewhat brighter. It now seems consistent with the lighting as well as the colors of other elements of the painting.

The areas below the building have been painted in. The street is a bit too dark and uniform and will change slightly in subsequent installments. The pavement/sidewalk area has also received paint in a color similar to the lit areas of the building. Yet too be addressed are the trees and a few other details.

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

That's about it for now, see you next week for volume 101.
