1705 Cowboy Campfire, Part 5 of 5

In our fifth and final episode of this reminisce painting called “Cowboy Campfire,” Jerry adds final highlights and details. Jerry shows how to bring up the highlights so that when the mist “glaze” is added the colors will come through and add more contrast to the painting. More highlights are added to cowboys and their hats. With soft gray, Jerry adds suggestion of reins from horse’s bridle, and highlights on a few more elements. Shows how to insert smoke into the painting from the campfire and use of pure red to brighten up the fire. With #10 bristle brush, Jerry begins the ‘glazing’ process showing how to streak, feather, and blend the “wind look” and weather elements into the painting as the grand finale.
