2010 A Perfect Pair, Part 1

Acrylic on 16x20 stretched canvas. In this first episode, Jerry explains to his viewers the purpose of a smoother surface for painting close-up feathers; then proceeds to show the process of using the 2-inch hake brush to create a gradated, mottled background to suggest the effect of faded or distant pine boughs. Then shows how to use the #4 chisel-edge brush to make more intermediate detailed pine branches. Now he finishes by blocking in the cardinals.
