Jerry begins a painting of a little country church in South Dakota and adds sunset colors.
Acrylic Painting.18x24 Horizontal. Another wonderful subject Jerry has selected from the United States as part of his quest to cover the entire 50 States: this time a little country church in South Dakota, Jerry has named this painting "Church in the Wildwood." Jerry starts with sketch of background land mass including an eroded bank. Uses # 10 bristle brush to establish a blending base then adding sunset colors. Jerry also shows blending with the hake brush to create softness. Jerry discusses values (the intensity of a color). Jerry shows feathering and shaping to give suggestion of edge of forest. He inserts area for road, and next uses the sable script brush to create distant, wispy trees in background. Jerry underpaints area for snow creating soft, blurry edge.
