Night Sail, Part 5
Jerry finishes up the boat sails and the body of the boat in this episode. He uses a #4 bristle brush with white glazes on the sail making sure to leave the brush strokes so that the sail appears to be blowing in the wind. He then uses Cadmium Red to finish out the portion of the sail. Any final details on the boat and the water are completed before the final step which is splattering. Jerry demonstrates how to take a toothbrush, mix gesso white and splatter the spray of the water in and around the boat, the white caps and how to remove the over spray.
