Beauty of Oil Painting with Gary and Kathwren Jenkins
Hibiscus on a Painted Mat
In this episode, Gary makes use of a mat and explains how you can do this. He paints a pink hibiscus amidst a beautiful fantasy of leaves and stalks. Note the complementary background of the painting that sets off the color of the hibiscus flower very nicely.
In THE BEAUTY OF OIL PAINTING, husband-and-wife artists Gary and Kathwren Jenkins teach the wet-on-wet method from their studio and gallery. With palette in hand and clean canvas before them, the couple calmly and confidently move step-by-step through the creation of one of their brilliantly colored floral oil paintings. This season, Gary expands the subjects of his paintings to include portraits of animals and landscapes.
