Paint This With Jerry Yarnell

Morning Fog, Part 1

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
(16x20 Acrylic) This painting illustrates how - as an artist - you can create atmosphere in a painting; and, in this case, morning fog at the beach. Jerry starts this picture using the Hake brush and covers the canvas with a light layer of gesso and then tints the canvas with Hooker's green. The background is then warmed with burnt sienna. Using burnt umber, the value system is applied to create distance starting at the horizon. Jerry angles the various levels of water lines, working toward the beach and using elliptical strokes to maintain flatness of the water. The last step in this session is to texture the beach by splattering in texture in various to the beach, as well as blocking in the old pier posts.
