Saturday Painting Palooza Volume 319

Hello again painting fans.

This week I'll be continuing with the painting of the Cape May, New Jersey shingle style house. It is seen in the photo directly below. (I'm using my usual acrylic paints on an 8x8 inch 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 now fixed the bay windows on the right side of the house. Both those of the first and second stories now line up. Additionally, highlights now appear on the central second story area. These are consistent with highlights/shadows seen elsewhere on the structure. Finally, and most obviously, the house to the left makes its first appearance in the painting. It is seen mostly in shadow. In the coming weeks, the shed seen to the right rear in the photo will make a nice bookend to that side.

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.

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.

Sometimes, attention to detail is just a fussy waste of time. In this case, though, it really does improve the overall look of the painting. Lookin' good!

Thanks Far! It cleans up that right side as well. Now I've got to clean up the front.
