Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.223

Hello again painting fans.

This week I'll be continuing with the Cape May, New Jersey painting. The photo that I will be using is seen directly below.

I'll be using my usual acrylics on an unusual 6 by 6 inch canvas.

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

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

I began by adding yellow oxide to the body of the house. In doing this, I was starting a series of thin layers that would be built into the house color. However, earlier layers will show through in the final result. The yellow oxide layer is seen directly below.

I continued by adding the details that define the house including windows and eaves. Much more work is required for these elements.

Over the yellow oxide, I added a layer of red. The house now appears as a rich orange. There is at least one more layer to go.

The current state of the painting is seen directly below.

That's about it for now. Next week I'll have more progress to show you. See you then. As always, feel free to add photos of your own work in the comments section below.

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.
