Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.355

Hello again painting fans.


For this week's cycle I will be starting an entirely new painting. I'm going back to Victorian Cape May in New Jersey. I'll be painting the late Victorian home seen in the photo directly below. I've had my eye on this one for a long time. The house to the right, only partially seen, was the subject of an earlier SPP cycle. This house is similar but with totally different details. They were obviously built as a pair apparently toward the end of the nineteenth century. Whle the one to the right has original details, this one may have had some updates. I'll have to look more closely next time I'm in Cape May. I started with an outline of the home on an 8x8 inch canvas. I'm using my usual acrylic paints. I chose the bright orange seen in the prior cactus painting. It will work well in the home's shingles. I painted in the sky just to see the contrast of colors. Then I painted a bit of the lawn. I'm pleased so far though the house looks a bit squished at this point. The current 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 piece to show you. See you then. As always, feel free to add photos of your own work in the comments section below.

The lines look a little thick. Is that deliberate?

Hi Larry/Far! It's intentional for purposes of making the sketch. They won't remain in the finished piece. In fact, the shingles will cover all of it.
