Event Details

Alla prima or “direct painting” is a fast a loose style of oil painting that is done in one or two sittings. This workshop begins with a strong emphasis on gesture drawing from the live model. Students will also learn to mix light and shadow colors of the face, hair and clothing from direct observation and learn to see the light and shadow sides of the face. We will also explore wet into wet painting techniques with the brush. This is an intermediate level class.

Drawing and painting experience with oil paint is a must.
