1912 African Cat Nap, Part 4

In the fourth episode, Jerry focuses on more details to begin finishing the wildlife and grasses. You’ll start to see this painting really come together and look more ‘alive’ as Jerry illustrates various techniques including use of brush pressure, negative space hot spots, skimming (to create fur), shaping, dry-brush blending, silver -lining, eye-stoppers, contrast, cast shadows, and more. He also provides a great explanation of the advantages of using a “dirty palette.”
