Using a 16x20 vertical stretched canvas and acrylic medium. Starts with pre-sketch and then begins scumbling with his #10 bristle brush. The painting is an impressionistic, loose technique: creating a suggestion versus the close-up details. Next step is creation of soft distant trees shapes to push trees in background (depth). Jerry uses script brush to lightly add collection of trees in background. To add contrast, Jerry uses #4 or #6 bristle along w/a grayish green to create cedar trees. Then with #4 bristle using rolling circles to add the rolling mist.
