Afternoon In Ptown

Afternoon in Ptown
12" x 24" x 2"
Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord
SOLD at The Red Inn

Yet another Provincetown painting that will make its way up to display at The Red Inn once it's dry. I was attracted to this image because of the light coming on the cottages that is so typical of the cape. 

I was pretty good about taking photos along the way so below you can see both my progress as well as  my process. 

I started with a cad orange/cad red wash in acrylic. Then sketched the scene in pencil on top.

For some reason I started working right to left. It's either because I'm left handed or that I loved that yellow light in those windows on the bottom right and was dying to paint that first.

This was how I left it after day one. I had only the sky and the foliage to add at my next session.

Il est toujours très intéressant de voir l'évolution d'une peinture... Chacun d'entre nous possède sa propre recette et c'est tant mieux !

Cette dernière oeuvre est particulièrement intéressante, j'aime la composition et la lumière qui joue avec les toits anguleux...
La présence de cette fenêtre éclairée apporte une atmosphère sereine.
Très joli travail.

Gros bisous

Merci pour votre gentil commentaire...
Vivez-vous au Cape ? Certaines de mes peintures sont exposées à la Blue Heron Gallery à Cape Cod.
