Acrylic Medium on 18x24 stretched canvas. In this opening session, Jerry talks to his viewers about the importance of developing a photographic memory. Then explains how to create a painting from memory by understanding all the elements of composition. Then he shows how to paint in a simple sky. He also shows how to take charcoal and make a rough sketch of the basic composition. He finishes by underpainting the snow and distant trees.
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.
