1802 The Roost, Part 2

In episode 2, Jerry adds a bit more work on the barnyard straw and then turns his focus to the rooster sketch being sure that this bird takes up major portion of the painting for balance of negative space. Starting with a tooth-brush, Jerry illustrates how to create a sandy dirt look, highlights, and texture. Now Jerry blocks in rooster with #6 chisel-edge brush being careful not to leave a hard edge. Blocks in the post and perch area and then the tail. Next Jerry works on neck area being careful not to lose the accuracy of the bird’s shape. Now Jerry works on beak with #4 round sable working around the bird’s eye. Starting with #2 bristle, Jerry begins to shape bird’s comb. A little work on the wood ladder in the door area of the chicken coop wraps up this session.
