Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.157

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.

I have painted the walls of the house in white and medium blue reflecting the lit and shaded areas. (Note that the lighting comes from the right side.) Though some changes will be made, these are the colors that will appear on the house's final version several weeks from now.

The porch now also has lit and shaded areas, consistent with the rest of the structure, with the roof receiving a second layer of paint. The posts are not placed as I'd like them to be and will change for the next installment.

The painting still has the appearance of a night scene, something that will also change for next time when a sky will appear. Still, this does provide a stark contrast to last week's painting on velvet effect.

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.
