Husband-and-wife artists Gary and Kathwren Jenkins return to public television after a eight-year hiatus with THE BEAUTY OF OIL PAINTING. In their new 26-part series, the veteran hosts of Jenkins Art Studio and Jenkins Art Workshop re-introduce viewers to the art of oil painting from their studio and gallery in Reno, Nevada. Gary and Kathwren's shared passion for teaching is evident as the couple calmly and confidently guide viewers step-by-step through the creation of a new painting. Gary, deriving inspiration from the garden, paints his trademark florals using the wet-on-wet method.
101 Cardinal: Gary Jenkins
On the first show of the new series, Gary paints a cute cardinal bird perched on a little branch, accented by leaves and small blossoms of flowers. This charming composition is set against a dark warm background.
