Acrylic Medium on 18x24 stretched canvas. In this opening session, Jerry explains the size, format, and tint of the canvas. Then he explains the use of his reference material, and the importance of using artistic license. He then shows how to use the hake brush to create a semi-mottled sky/background to establish the proper color scheme. He now shows how to use the smaller bristle brushes to scrub in the first layer of distant trees, brushes, and hills. Then finishes by underpainting the foreground... [see more] brush and grass.
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.
