Painting Portraits in Alla Prima

In this workshop we’ll paint alla prima (wet into wet) in oils and explore painting the portrait from a model. This is also known as “Direct Painting”. Students will learn how to achieve a better likeness as well as how to paint convincing flesh tones. Each class will include a painting demonstration, discussion and individual instruction at the easel. Discussions and handouts will cover the stages to developing a painting, anatomical proportion, structure of the face and features, as well as value, edges and modeling with color temperature.
