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've spent considerable time revising the structure, much of that realigning the left side. I realized that the rooflines of the turret and left-facing gable were not in line. I have adjusted both elements a bit to get things right. They now stand together in line. While I was on that side, I revised the chimney with a highlighted section in a pinkish color. The highlights on the left side of the building were also overpainted and are now a bit brighter. Above, I've started to overpaint the roof but this will require some additional work. The small gable in the turret has been given some detail and the shadows revised. These will also require more work. The second story windows of the turret have been respaced. Finally, the front steps have been started but will also need more work.
The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.
I'll have a more progress to show you next week. See you then.
