Alla Prima Demo
If you are like me then you probably love seeing other artists' demonstrations. I especially enjoy trying to figure out what the artist is thinking about during the process of building a painting. When working with a long pose or even spending multiple sessions with the same still life requires planning. This is a muscle that I appreciate and am currently developing, but I also enjoy paintings that are completed in one sitting a.k.a.alla prima. I remember one of my teachers saying, "Know what stage you are in and focus on getting the most out of that stage before moving on to the next one." I find this discipline very challenging, but rewarding when I take the extra time to get it right. Enjoy!
