Paint This With Jerry Yarnell

Mama's Baby, Part 1

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
(16x20 Acrylic) This session is about the painting of animals, specifically a cow. First, Jerry sets the background by putting in a non-descriptive dark background using loose and impressionistic strokes. The loose strokes continue as Jerry adds the light green grasses. No horizon line is required in this painting. The use of warmer shades in the foreground and use of lighter shades in the center frame the center of interest. Next, Jerry sketches the cows and blocks them in with a dark mixture, and uses a warm gray mixture to block in the white areas of the cow. The calf is blocked in using midnight black to complete this part.
