Hello again painting fans.
This week I will be continuing with painting of the Cold Spring, New York house. The photo that I will be using is seen directly below. I will be using my usual acrylics on an 8x8 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 started to apply paint to the various components of the image. These are all watery preliminary layers. These help with definition and will all have subsequent refining layers added. The lawn appears in watery green, the sky in a too dark blue. Some very thin browns have been added to the house itself. Not as much progress as I would have liked but it's a start.
The current and final state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.
I'll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.
