Paint This With Jerry Yarnell

Step By Beautiful Step, Part 2

Episode Guide »
In this part, Jerry explores the ups and downs of this painting. Since there is no horizon line, all the various angles are first checked to make sure that they are correct and in alignment until they fit. By painting in the pots at the top and bottom of the steps, we create the space in which the floral vegetation can be blocked in between the pots. Use loose strokes to create pockets and suggestions of a dark, leafy area. Vegetation can be added to the side wall and window and door as well. The next step is to suggest the shadows that will be cast onto the steps by the flowers, using a purple-gray mixture. Using the No. 4 bristle brush and a light green mixture, detailed leaves can be added to highlight the flower and vegetation areas. The next step is to add the shadows to the side of the steps as well as to define the baseline of the wall. The pots can then be highlighted, and you can choose the color of the flowers that can be added using impressionistic strokes. Purple is always a good color to help tie the painting together.
