Paint This With Jerry Yarnell

A Yellowstone Wonder, Part 4

Season 14, Episode 8 of 13

Jerry begins detailing the elk. With a #4 chisel-edge brush, works on highlights in the elk's eye, nose, and other facial areas and in some areas forming the suggestion of hair. Shadows areas are a result of the original underpainting and give the image its dimensional form. Then with #6 chisel edge move to highlights on the elk's body to see its form take more shape. Now with #6 chisel-edge brush, Jerry inserts weeds and illustrates importance of light and shadow. Then with #6 chisel-edge brush, tap color to add a grayish-blue, airy, lacey look coming through the reeds. Jerry switches to his #4 script brush to add tall, light colored weeds and pods ... pulling a heavier concentration of weeds around elk. Final highlights include spots on elk's back, and with that Jerry recommends the viewer add as much or as little detail as he/she prefers and add layering and glazing to bring the color of the elk's body up one or two levels.
