Paint This With Jerry Yarnell

African Cat Nap, Part 1

Season 19, Episode 9 of 13

Acrylic Medium, 18x24 Gallery Wrap Canvas. Continuing on with our focus on African wildlife, Jerry begins with an overview of his reference material that he has selected to create a composite. Jerry sketched in the outline of the lions in this painting in advance. First he begins with the underpainting with #12 bristle brush by using the "scumbling" technique blocking in background area around his sketch of the lions. Jerry discusses his preference for sketching with a skinny stick of soft-vine charcoal when doing animals. Now with #4 bristle brush Jerry begins a rough blocking-in of areas of the lion's eye and head but then moves again to background area. Then with #4 chisel-edge brush Jerry begins inserting a bit of brush in the background. Jerry asks students to get their backgrounds in before episode #2.
