Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.511
This week I will be continuing with the painting of the brick Victorian house. The photo I am using is seen directly below. I will be using my usual acrylics on an 10 by 10 inch 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.
Having already painted the large shadowed areas of the house, I began to paint the lit areas. I'm again using brighter than normal colors as I did in the last painting. The body of the house will be an orange color, a mixture of brown and ochre. It provides a highly brightened version of the brick seen in the original photo. As to the roof and foundation, I've gone my own way with a light brownish color. These colors seen to play well with the blue shadowed areas.
The current state of the painting is seen directly below.
I'll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.
Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.
