Paint This With Jerry Yarnell

Appaloosa Beauty, Part 3

Season 18, Episode 7 of 13

In the third episode, Jerry continues work on the Appaloosa horse in this beautiful painting. Using #2 bristle brush and starting on back side of the horse he begins shaping the rear-end of the horse's body using a feathering motion and building highlights on the horse. Moving along the neck, withers, and various sections to clean up the form and create nice, subtle blends. Jerry emphasizes importance of getting the withers positioned correctly. Next Jerry moves back to fix a little smudge over the horse's back with use of background colors of the pasture. With #6 bristle brush Jerry uses a deep shadow color to insert cast shadows underneath the horse - again feathering so there are no hard edges. Then with #4 chisel-edge begins highlighting process on the horse. Jerry switches to #2 bristle to scumble and add scattered brown tints so you create the muscle, creation of hair, etc.
