Episode Guide »
This very popular painting has a unique array of perspective, value, colors, foreshortening issues that make it very challenging; however, if you follow the steps, Jerry makes it look easy. The first step is to tint the canvas gray and use a white charcoal pencil to sketch in the steps. The painting starts by first applying the dark areas in the windows and the door behind the steps. Next, the side walls are blocked in with a lighter gray and then using gradually darker tones the face of the actual steps are blocked in. The formation of the front pilaster is shaped using a chisel-edged brush as well as blocking in the top of the steps, starting with thin white slivers at the top and widening the steps to the bottom. Details can then be added to the door area both the threshold and the side walls to indicate brick work or a stucco texture. Use a lot of small brush steps to make the steps and the building look old and worn. Do not be afraid to use color in this process.
