Acrylic Medium on 16x20 stretched canvas. In this opening segment, Jerry explains to his viewers the process of creating atmosphere in a painting. Then he shows how to apply a mottled background using the hake brush. Then he shows how to apply phase one of the rain using a toothbrush and a spray bottle. He finishes by using the #6 bristle brush to apply the glowing lights of the distant city and reflections. He then explains how to use the soft vine charcoal to make a rough sketch of the old man.
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.
