Beauty of Oil Painting on KENW-TV

Fridays at 12:30 p.m. & Saturdays at Noon

In THE BEAUTY OF OIL PAINTING, 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 Jenkins use brilliant color, specific brush strokes and the wet-on-wet method to paint their trademark florals and portraits of creatures great and small. This season, Gary shares clips of his recent trip to Europe and also expands the subject of his paintings to include animals and landscapes he saw during his travels.
