Jerry Yarnell: How To Paint Rain In Oil Paints
Have you ever wondered how to paint rain in oil paints? This nice compact short art tutorial shows how to give the impression of realistic rain by engaging in a few basic hints and tips.
Jerry Yarnell has a scene featuring horses and cattlemen already pre painted in oil paints on canvas before the video begins. The technique for painting rain is very simple, he mixes the white oil paint with some grey/blue to give it an off-white hue and he loads his number 4 round sable brush with paint . Grab a tissue and take all the excess paint from the brush leaving the paint internally within the bristles. This is the fun part and you must be brave, so you hold the brush right at the base end and you use a quick flick stroke method up and down the page at an angle at which you want your rain to be falling from. Be sure to go over background and foreground because being rain it gets everywhere , you can then use a smaller brush to create small splashes on the likes of the ground or any of the objects in your painting.
This really is a useful, fun and quick technique for painting rain in oil paints so be sure to give it a try.
