Acrylic Medium on 16x20 stretched canvas. In this opening episode, Jerry takes his viewers through the process of understanding the proper use of multiple pieces of reference material. Then discusses sketching in the tree trunk and raccoons. He then shows how to paint a mottled background around the tree. Then he finishes up by showing how to underpaint the raccoons and inside of the old tree trunk.
A few years ago and as a part of a bold move, Jerry Yarnell launched a whole new series of painting shows called Paint This with Jerry Yarnell. With a calm and reassuring style that is unmatched by any other art instructor, Jerry guides students through fine-art techniques that can be practiced at home. What separates Jerry's new series from his older work is the culmination of his entire career to date (over 30 years) brought to the viewer in the form of his best work ever.
