Beauty of Oil Painting

Beauty of Oil Painting with Gary and Kathwren Jenkins

Orchid of the Tropics

This time Gary paints an orchid surrounded by the lush greenery of a tropical rainforest. Gary pays attention to the color intensity and makes use of grayscale. This allows a painter to determine how strong the color value must be. This orchid is framed between gold leaf foil at the top and bottom of the canvas.

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.
