Alla Prima Figure Painting
Meets 4 times
3 Tuesday-Friday, May 10-13, 10:30a.m.-3:30p.m.
Instructor: David Shevlino
This class focuses on painting the figure alla prima (direct wet into wet). You’ll learn a variety of techniques used to create a fresh, spontaneous response to your subject. After an initial demonstration, students will work on their own by applying paint in large tonal patches and refining/adding details as the painting progresses. This class is particularly helpful to students who wish to paint more loosely, use brush strokes economically and take advantage of the inherent beauty of wet oil paint. Students of all levels are welcome.
