Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.358

Hello again painting fans.

For this week's cycle I'll be continuing with the Cape May shingle style Victorian house. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 8x8 inch gallery-wrapped canvas. The photo that I'm using is seen in the photo directly below.

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.

In anticipation of painting the lit/shaded areas, I've darkened the front-facing portions of the building. These now appear in dark brown. Looking more carefully at the roof, I will need to lighten it for the correct appearance. Most of it is lit in the photo.

I've also begun to refine things in preparation for the fine details. These include the porch and the arched open area above the main entrance. I've even added some grass. Looking at things again, I see that I've lost the angle on the upper front roof. There is still lots to do.

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.
