Paint This With Jerry Yarnell

Step By Beautiful Step, Part 3

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
In this part, Jerry focuses on the final highlighting to finish the painting. He starts by adding various colors to the flower arrangements, including yellow, pink and orange. Next, highlights are added to the top of the steps and to the walls to suggest reflective light and also to add interest. A thin mixture of white gesso can be sprayed on the steps to provide another level of texture. Cracks can be added to the wall and other surfaces to give them an aging and worn appearance. Using soft gray and a chisel-edge brush, Jerry adds a board leaning against the building. Highlights on the flowers are repeated with thicker paint to make them pop. Do not overwork the details.
