In this final session, Jerry begins with #4 bristle brush and uses small comma strokes to add foliage to close-up trees to fit configuration of tree trunk. He adds details, highlights, and miscellaneous items (shadows, weeds, hotspots, rocks, fallen log) to finish up this wonderful painting which is the student (instructional) version of one of his original museum pieces.
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.
