1411 - Steps to Nowhere, Part 3 of 5

In the third of five(5) episodes of "Steps To Nowhere" Jerry starts with a brief discussion around inserting a sketch into the painting but moves on to using a #6 bristle brush to create soft sand and dirt. Now Jerry uses the toothbrush technique to splatter … thus adding the effect of gravel, pebbles and dirt. This also makes the area appear the sun is hitting the pebbles. Now he builds grasses around this area. Uses the #6 bristle brush to create combination of grasses with the ‘push’ technique. This creates drama.  Next Jerry uses the #4 chisel-edge brush to create stacked stones and opportunity for shadows. Similarly uses same technique on the steps...with quick, decisive brush strokes. The remainder of this episode Jerry spends on stonework creating harmony and balance in the painting.
