1806 Appaloosa Beauty, Part 2

In the second episode, Jerry gives a little brief overview of the gallery wrap. Next he emphasizes while sketching in the horse the importance of leaving proper negative space.  Negative space is that space that surrounds an object and gives it its form.   Learning this makes drawing a snap. Now Jerry uses his #6 bristle brush to underpaint the horse’s body with a warm gray being careful to “pull inward” from the edges( versus outward).to leave a soft edge. Jerry shows how to use a darker value change for various parts of the body separations (mane, underneath neck, legs, etc) with the #2 bristle brush.  Next Jerry uses the #6 bristle brush to dry-brush in grass emulating sunlight on the surface and paying special attention to the gradation taking place. Last technique in this episode includes one more layer of light in the background.
