Saturday Painting Palooza Volume 323

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've addressed a number of details for this week's installment. Note that the windows now have the details that give the house much of its character. These include the diagonal sections on the upper windows. Out in front, the bushes have received highlights, providing definition and a 3 dimensional quality. Highlights have been added to the grassy areas and bush far to the rear. Finally, the sidewalk has received some blue for a more varied surface.

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

That's about it for now. Next week I'll have an entirely new painting 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.

Wow, fast finish! I expected another week or two on this one, because it just now hit that 3D stride you usually arrive at around mid-project. Looking forward to the next oneā€¦

nice. When I draw a house it looks like the ones toddlers draw, complete with the curly smoke coming out of the chimney.

If someone held a gun to my head and told me to draw something that actually looked like something recognizable, I'd hope they'd be satisfied with an orange.[providing there was an orange crayon handy]

I do occasionally paint abstracts

here's one of those:

Thanks for sharing. I came visiting via FARfetched.

Thanks Far! It feels like I've been doing this one for a very long time. That's why I wanted to move things along a bit. But I am happy with the result!

Karen, Thanks for stopping by! I'll have to check out your work. Oranges are cool subjects for a painting. ;-)

Karen, I like your abstract. There's a lot of movement in it. Well done!

I only paint when I need a brain reset. LOTS of turmoil in my life when I did that piece. When it was done I found I couldn't hang it right over my workspace because it was TOO full of movement...*laughing*...

I moved to a new place recently and in my new space it doesn't hang on the wall. It's on the floor leaning against a wall right in my line of sight while I'm working.

That seems to be working just fine.
[grounded it like a lightning rod]

looking forward to seeing your next piece. Thanks for taking the time to stop over and see mine, and for the kind words.
