House on Signal Mountain (As of Nov. 3, 2019)

Today I worked some more on "house portrait." I am working from a reference photo posted here September 16, 2019.  At this point, the composition is fine and the painting is progressing in terms of accuracy, though I continue to check and correct details.  Now I am working to refine textures and colors. Today I made some changes to the shapes of the shadows on the lawn (especially on the right side of the canvas).  I added some cast shadows on the tree trunk. And I worked on the color of the lawn, trying to find that soft yellow-green that I have seen in Tennessee. To be continued. . . .
