Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of FDR’s house. The photo that I’m using is seen directly below.


I’ll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 5×7 inch canvas.

When last seen the painting appeared as it does in the photo seen directly below.


Since last time I have continued to work on the painting.

I have now begun to paint the siding, sky and shadowed foreground. Most of the siding seen in the photo is comprised of a stony stucco-like material. I wish that paint could convey that texture but it would be difficult, especially on a canvas of this size. Much more for next week.

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


I’ll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.
