Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.243

Hello again painting fans.

This week I'll be continuing with the shadowed Cape May house. I will be using the photo seen directly low.

I will be using my usual acrylics on a somewhat larger 8 by 8 inch gallery-style canvas.(This is a thicker canvas similar to the one used in the towered house.)

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've done yet more detail work this week. Starting at the top, I've finished the small roof overhangs seen on the left side. Moving down a bit, the downspout now begins where the roof overhang to the right ends. Slightly below that, the 2nd story railings now appear in red. My color blind eyes overlooked this until madame boran pointed it out to me. (I can see the red, my eyes are simply not as sensitive to color.) Moving down to the awnings, the support rod has been added between those on the front of the building. Detail has been added to the column separating the front and left side awnings.

Down on the ground, the space in the foundation along the driveway has now been filled. I've begun the front steps and porch railing but these will need much more work.

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

Lookin' good!!!

I think you mentioned your color-impairment before. I have a similar issue, really strong light helps a lot with it.

Oh, nice! I'm glad that guy came around selling red paint. Good thing Madame B. knew what it was, or you might have given it to the black wrought iron painting committee.

This is one of my fav of your paintings.

Hi, far! Hi, family man, if you come around!

Thanks guys! I haven't been here this weekend very much.

Far, I actually have color blindness to green other than very bright shades. But it manifests itself in other ways such as the issue here.

Nancy, that wrought iron committee is actually pretty easy going. ;-)
