Capturing the portrait believably in oil paint can be especially difficult, and doing it in one sitting may seem almost impossible—yet this is exactly what we will be doing in this workshop,“Alla prima”—a painting technique used mostly in acrylic and oil painting.
“Alla prima” is a painting technique used mostly in acrylic and oil painting in which layers of wet paint are added to previously applied layers of wet paint.
You will embark on the journey of learning about oil paint and practicing accurate color mixing, values, and forms of the model to help develop your ability to paint "alla prima.”
There will be an hour-long lunch break so pleased provide your own lunch.
Materials: for this workshop we will be using acrylics to avoid any fumes/clean-up difficulties.
Ali has techniques to slow the drying of the paint to allow for successful wet on wet application. Using these methods, the paint will look and behave like oils.
