Wupatki Pueblo / Red Ryder / The Corn Crib DVD

Wupatki Pueblo

Near Flagstaff, Arizona

Filmed in Arizona at the Wupatki National Monument, Roger uses acrylics to paint the 900 year old pueblo. He explains in depth the variations of cool and warm colors on the walls and surrounding rocks made by the facets of reflected light. Sarah talks with a young Hopi man who describes the history of the ruins and reminisces about his rich family heritage as they stroll through the pueblo.

Red Ryder

Pagosa Springs, Colorado

Roger paints an old wooden school house on the property of artist Fred Harmon where a museum of Mr. Harmons work is located. This is where the famous Red Ryder comic was created. Many of Fred’s fine western paintings are on display along with the very first Red Ryder BB gun. Sarah talks with Fred Harmon’s son about his long career and tours the studio. Roger sets up his easel and uses acrylics to paint the brightly lit school house in the morning sun focusing on the use of light and shade to demonstrate the contrasting values bringing out certain areas of the painting.

The Corn Crib

Mills River, North Carolina

Working on location, Roger begins the painting by sketching out the composition with a broad brush on a Masonite board using a limited palette of blues and earth colors, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, and Yellow Ochre. Roger explains the importance of laying in the darks and working towards the lights.
