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.

There are many changes for this week's installment.  Starting at/near the top, the shady side third story has received windows.  These are actually meant to be dormer windows.  However, I did not like the result when painted with the lit dormer sidewalls.  So, I left them with only the dark window outline.  Next, I've added the details of the various other windows as seen in the original photo.  Below, the foundation has lattice and openings around the perimeter.  Below that, the lawn, curb and street have each received final layers of paint.  Note that I've left things simple.  I feel that any detail beyond what is now on the canvas would have been too much.  It is now complete, and I am mostly happy with it.

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

 

I'll have an entirely new painting to show you next week.  See you then.

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.
