Paint This With Jerry Yarnell

The Lighthouse, Part 1

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
(18 x 24 Acrylic) A simple painting that teaches you the process of fine art technique. In this opening segment, it is all about blocking in the entire canvas. The background does not look like much, but it is essential to getting the value system correct. Starting with the Hake brush, Jerry gently blends in the sky, starting at the top and ending with a touch of red glow at the horizon to create atmosphere. The sky color is then reflected into the water, and the ocean is blocked in by using turquoise, and it gradually becomes darker moving into the foreground. Switching to the No. 10 bristle brush, Jerry then blocks in the cliffs, using heavy texturing. This is also a good time to spot in the shoreline rocks that will serve as eye stoppers at the bottom as well as to create interest. Using the No. 4 bristle brush, Jerry completes this segment by adding initial highlights to the ocean and creating the lights and darks for the wave motion. At this transition point it is necessary to choose a lighthouse you desire and to block it into the cliff.
