Hello again painting fans.
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 have continued to refine the house. The shadows and windows are now darker and more solid. I've attempted to follow the interesting pattern of shadows just below the overhang of the 3rd story. These shadows are important in defining the shape of the house. I'm still making decisions about how things will appear. I'm going to leave the shady side details to a few dark blue lines, but that will be for an installment to come. I need to get the ochre out and paint the roof sections.
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.
