Saturday Painting Palooza Vol. 158

Welcome back.

This week we will be continuing with the (West) Cape May, New Jersey Victorian house.  The photo that I'm using is seen directly below.

I am doing this piece in my usual acrylics and, once again, in an 8x10 format on stretched canvas.

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


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

Appearing for the first time is the sky seen here its initial first layer incarnation. It will receive several more coats before this is done.

The shadows have received considerable attention. Note that the light is coming from the right side. The front porch casts a heavy shadow beneath its roof. Around it the entire front facade is in a consistent shadow similar to that of the source photo. Extra paint was used to start the street.

Finally, the roof has been given an addiotinal layer of paint, but not its last.

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

That's about it for now. I'll see you next week with more progress.  As always, feel free to add photos of your own work in the comments section below.
