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.

There a lots of changes this week.  On the lawn, bushes have sprouted around the foundation.  Note that there is one in shade immediately to the left of the front steps.  I have attempted to add highlights and shadow to the bushes consistent with the rest of the painting.  Note that the edge of the lawn also has its own shadow and the front edge.  It also has its own texture now.  To the far right, the house next door has faint details.  It looks a bit like a checkerboard but works fairly well.  To the extreme right rear, the structure in the distance has some definition but not too much.  And with that the painting is done.

The current and final state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.

That's about it for now. Next week I'll have a new painting 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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
