Beauty of Oil Painting with Gary and Kathwren Jenkins

Husband-and-wife artists Gary and Kathwren Jenkins 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.

With palette in hand and clean canvas before them, the Jenkinses use brilliant color, specific brush strokes and the wet-on-wet method to paint flowers and creatures great and small. Subjects include: their trademark florals, as well as portraits of an eagle, egret, macaw, swan, cardinal and rooster.
