Ham House stage 3

Third stage of ‘Ham House’. I’ve started to get the background colours in, keeping it pale at first so that I can gradually build up the hue.

Ham House painting second stage

Here is the second stage of my Ham House painting. I wanted to get the brightest/strongest colours established, which in this case are the greens in the foreground – where the sun is directly on the foliage.Ham House second stage

Painting of Ham House in stages

I’ve just started a small acrylic painting of Ham House and decided to photograph the progress. This first pic is the underpainting. I’ve chosen ‘indigo’ for this one, to help with the strong deep shadows.Ham House first stage
