Gary Jenkins Abstract Background DVD

This Gary Jenkins Background DVD shows how Gary gets many of the lovely abstract backgrounds that we see in his paintings. View the excerpt from this video below, and then go to our shop to buy your own copy.


Oils, acrylics, and water can be used to give a unique background to your painting, and this DVD shows you how. The DVD also demonstrates how paper tablecloths, doilies, straws and other objects can be used.


The background to a painting is important. It can give a context to the main subject, it gives atmosphere and a directionality of light. A  properly applied background can turn a 2 dimensional subject into a 3 dimensional subject with the use of contrasting colours and styles. It can make your subject pop.
