Paint This With Jerry Yarnell

A Yellowstone Wonder, Part 3

Season 14, Episode 7 of 13

In this episode, Jerry starts with giving brief tips on drawing the elk and the rule of negative space. Continuing on with underpainting, Jerry uses #6 bristle brush and underpaints the front part of the elk always pulling in or out with your brush to create soft blurry edges. With a little lighter mixture, blocks in the rest of the elk. Switching to the #2 bristle brush, Jerry darkens sections of the elk's ears; then with the #4 chisel-edge brush uses white for the light areas of the ears. Using #4 round or flat sable, uses black to block in eye, nose, chin. Toggling back to the background, create soft colors with #10 bristle and producing highlights with the skimming technique. Jerry inserts highlights which appear to be fallen logs along the shoreline then uses script brush to make stems on the logs. Highlights details are continued for the remainder of the episode.
