July in Provincetown

Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord
I'm getting ready for summer by painting some more Provincetown themed paintings which I hope to show up at The Red Inn this season. This is a pretty quintessential, well photographed cottage on Commercial Street in Ptown. If anyone know if this has a particular name, please let me know. I just loved the large flag in the front and the flower boxes with the hits of red. It is just so wonderfully summer.
Below is a photo I took of the painting after my first session. I got pretty far along that first day, so then I just had to come back and finish the fence and the sidewalk in front.
I like to include some closeup shots so you can see the texture of the palette knife strokes. I like how each of these look like little paintings in and of themselves.
