Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting with a new painting of Wilderstein, the Hudson Valley home of FDR’s cousin Daisy Suckley. The photo that I’m using (my own from a recent visit) is seen directly below.


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

I started with my usual grid and pencil sketch. I think that this turned out fairly well. Some small adjustments will be needed.

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.
