Hello again painting fans.
This week I will be continuing with the three turreted Victorian house in Cape May, New Jersey. I will be using my usual acrylic paints on a conventional 8x8 inch canvas. The photo that I'm using is seen 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.
I've concentrated on the house itself for the most part. I began by outlining the windows and various transitions in blue, also adding some to the roof. Then I painted the siding in orange, bringing it down to the porch level. At that point, the underpainting was finally done. I started to paint some white over the orange in the central turret to see how things will look. It will be interesting to see how things appear when there are a couple of layers on the orange. But that is a subject best left for next week.
The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.
I'll have more progress for you next week. See you then.
