Saturday Painting Palooza Volume 280

Hello again painting fans.

I'll be continuing with the painting of the turreted Cape May Victorian house. I'm using my usual acrylic paints on an 8x8 inch gallery-style (thick) canvas.

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

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

Well, I didn't get to add any color to the existing blues. Instead, I've gone over all the house details and added a few more. The windows and shadows are now darker and more defined. I will soften these in the weeks to come. Notice the "eyebrows over the windows in the turret. The lawn is darker and ready for some green. To the rear, the house next door is more defined yet still distant. Finally, the sidewalk in the foreground makes it first appearance.

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

That's about it for now. Next week I'll have a new piece 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.

"Next week I'll have a new piece" — does that mean this one's done? I kind of like the mono-blue.
