Night Sail, Part 1 of 5
(16 X 20 Canvas, Acrylic Medium)
In the 1st of 5 lessons in this series, Jerry begins on a charcoal, almost dove gray under painted canvas. In phase one of this painting he uses a Hake brush and starting 2/3 of the way down the canvas he mixes yellow, purple and white to create a beautiful sky. He builds the base slowing while working from dark to light slowing creating the emergence of a night sky and clouds. He begins creating the clouds with a wonderful and exciting technique of an application of a dark color on the canvas this blending a white into the clouds, all the while softly blending the observing the contrast as well as the negative space.
