Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.442
This week I will be continuing with the painting of the turreted Cape May, New Jersey house. The photo that I will be using is seen directly below. I will be using my usual acrylics on a 8x10 gallery-wrapped canvas.
When last seen, the painting appeared as it does in the photo seen directly below.
Since that time, I have continued to work on the painting.
I began this week's changes with the covered porch. The posts are now thicker as well as the header above. (I see that the railing is not all in line. Sigh.) I then turned to the other house, but things were not going well next door. I finally decided to paint out the house and put in a tree. Or at least the start of a tree. I mixed some greenish paint and painted in the lower portion. Some light greenish paint above was intended to lay a foundation for the sky. But when I looked again the next morning I realized that there should be two plants, the slightly more distant tree suggested by the lighter paint and the darker bush below. Why hadn't I seen that the night before when I applied the paint? Hmm.
Other changes include darker paint applied to the tree to the far rear and the street. Both will need more work.
The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.
I'll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.
