504 Turquoise River, part 4 of 4

This last session is all about final highlighting.  Starting with the shoreline debris and using a thin glaze with a chisel-edge brush, Jerry scumbles along to create the logs and limbs along the shoreline.  Switching to the No. 4 bristle brush, Jerry highlights the rocks to take them up a notch.  Next, Jerry highlights the foreground pines with a nice light and bright touch.  The river is the focus of the painting, and slivers of highlights are added with a very light touch, creating a sunlit glow in the water using elliptical shapes.  Next, Jerry uses the No. 4 round sable and pure white to add the final highlights to the water, creating masses by using a series of dots.  Do it right, and the painting will pop.  The final details are up to you to complete the painting with a personal touch.
