Folk Art Painting Continued

Today I continued this painting by working from the background forward.  Fence, paths, bushes, and details on the little stone house start to bring this little village together.

Buildings in the foreground will be painted next.  Hope you enjoy watching this painting grow.  You can check out how it looked before in my previous post.
I'm going over the village names that I've collected in my little notebook and will be writing the story to go with the painting when it is finished. 
Here are a couple of scenes that I painted that are a similar layout.

The final details are always my favorite part!


  1. When we traveled to Virginia, I saw a number of little villages that I'm sure must be your inspiration, All your buildings a so perfect.

  2. It is interesting to see how you do it. I found myself working from right to left today so I wouldn't smudge my work. I suppose that is what you're doing here.


  4. Hii Catherine, it's fun to watch your village grow. I love the village stores in the foreground with the countryside in the background. It's fun to see what will happen next :)

  5. It's fun to see your work in progress! You know I'm a HUGE fan! Your art is all over my house! It makes me very happy! I love that there are paintings for each of the seasons, too! Warm hugs, Diane ♥♥♥

  6. I love to see paintings in progress, and I can imagine how cool a story fitting to your lovely paintings would be.
    Have a great weekend

  7. Catherine, your new painting will be beautiful. Thanks for showing it in progress. As always, good luck with your ebay sale.
