Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.360

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.

To begin with, I must make an admission. I've been moving very slowly with this piece, avoiding the hard work of the fine details. Progress has been at a snail's pace to date. The good news is that I've finally done that hard work and the painting has turned the corner, so to speak. A review of the photo below will tell the tale. It has been transformed.

Windows and railings have been added although the window glass will need some further attention. On the lower left, the small roof now sits above brackets that still need completion. The front steps have been moved far forward but still need some fine details as will the entryway above. On top, the pipe towering above the roof has been added along with its shadow. Finally, I've fixed many of the perspective problems seen earlier. (Note that I've begun the structure to the right.)

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.
