1312 Prairie Magic, Part 3 of 4

This is the 3rd of 4 episodes in water miscible oil painting project "Prairie Magic" in the 1300 series. Creating a vignette of this painting by blending the corners will keep the eye flowing and not run off the page or worse yet just stop. Jerry creates a soft blend in the corners with the large brush the same as softening the edges of the rain clouds. He demonstrates a really exciting technique of pulling the rain over the prairie grass by skimming gently and feathering all the edges. Each object that is added to the prairie scene becomes more and more obvious but he stresses how each item needs to be softened to fit into the composition.
