series description

In THE BEAUTY OF OIL PAINTING, husband-and-wife artists Gary and Kathwren Jenkins teach the wet-on-wet method from their studio and gallery. 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.
