In this opening episode, Jerry discusses with his viewers the size, format, and tint of the canvas. He then discusses his reference material and the arrangement of the composition. He now shows how to paint the sky and background hills. Then he shows how to paint in the road and meadows on the sides of the road. He now shows how to paint in the very background Cypress trees. Then finishes by painting in the large Cypress trees behind the gate wall.
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.
